Cheese of the Week: Tuma Persa

Now on offer in the Park Slope Food Coop's Cheese Case:

Tuma Persa

Extremely rare/Limited production!!! Unknown to the USA until recently!

It is made by only one producer (Salvatore Passalaqua) in the hills near Palermo, Sicily, who began making this cheese after he found an ancient recipe.

This cow¹s milk cheese has a very complex flavor profile.

Although very tasty, it is never salty.

It is earthy and fragrant & has a genuine rustic appearance !

It has a unique, pleasant "peppery" finish !
