Introducing “The Summer of Sheep” Promotion Featuring All Sheep’s Milk Cheeses
July 14, 2020
Forever Cheese, importer of cheeses and specialty foods from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Croatia, has declared this summer “The Summer of Sheep” and has launched a promotion featuring 17 of their sheep’s milk cheeses. The promotion, lasting all summer, celebrates both classic and more rare sheep’s milk cheeses from a variety of cheesemakers in Italy, Spain, and Croatia. The importer specifically chose these 17 cheeses to showcase the vast array of textures and flavors possible in sheep’s milk cheese.
“This summer, we wanted to put a special focus on our sheep’s milk cheeses,” explains co-owner Michele Buster. “With this curated list, we are highlighting some of our favorites as well as some lesser known gems. We hope that through this promotion, our customers and cheese lovers in general find a new appreciation for sheep’s milk cheeses, while having some fun tasting new varieties that they may not have encountered before.”
As a part of the promotion, Forever Cheese is celebrating “The Summer of Sheep” on their social media and email newsletter through August. They will feature cheeses like Gran Cacio Etrusco, a pecorino from the countryside of Rome that is rubbed with a mix of olive oil and vinegar during its six months of aging, and Miticrema®, a one-of-a-kind spreadable sheep’s milk cheese from Murcia, Spain that is a perfect substitute for regular cream cheese. Other cheeses, like Pecorino Camomilla, a semi-soft Italian cheese coated in delicate chamomile blossoms, and Manchego Chisquero, a raw milk artisan Manchego from a closed-circle farm, aren’t as widely known and have a smaller production, but are equally as worthy of exploration. To follow along, check out the hashtag #thesummerofsheep. The idea is for consumers to experiment, compare, learn, and open up a world of flavors all possible through one single ingredient: sheep’s milk.
The following cheeses are part of the promotion:
Blu di Pecora
Cacio de Roma®
Gran Cacio Etrusco
Pecorino di Fossa
Rustico® Red/Black Pepper
Sfizio Pecorino Aged
