Pecorino Romano
Pecorino Romano is one of the most widely used, sharper alternatives to Parmesan cheeses. Because of the hard texture and sharp & salty Flavor, Pecorino Romano is an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes, breads and baking casseroles. Pecorino Romano is a hard sheep cheese that goes great with Big bold Italian red wine or a light beer.

The Parmigiano Reggiano or Parmesan cheese as it is called in English is considered to be among the top cheeses by cheese connoisseurs. Today, it is produced by various producers. However, PDO designation states that for a cheese to be called as Parmesan, it has to be produced from cows grazing on fresh grass and hay.
Cheeses mocking Parmigiano Reggiano are called as Parmesan or Italian hard cheese by producers to avoid legal issues. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is named after the provinces in which it is made, namely Provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Mantua.
True Parmesan cheese has a hard, gritty texture and is fruity and nutty in taste. Cheeses mocking Parmesan or inferior Parmesan may have a bitter taste. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is mostly grated over pastas, used in soups and risottos. It is also eaten on its own as a snack.
