Pecorino, Pecorino

Pienza%20lunch.jpg

Brad and I left Pino's tour and scooted off to nearby Pienza for some Pecorino shopping and lunch. After our shopping errands, of two wheels of different ages of pecorino, and a couple jars of my favorite lemon honey, we chose a pretty, favorite spot called "Chiocciola" for a cheesy meal.

I love the flower-filled garden of this restaurant. The air is filled with floral scents with a definite whiff of cheese!

My FAVORITE thing on their menu involves a basket of bread, and melted pecorino with honey.

It was just as yummy as I remembered! Brad ordered veal scallops covered with melted pecorino.

Sunshine, glorious weather, good cheese, bread and wine...what could be better?

I agree, Palma - good cheese, good bread, good wine, and good company - what more could you ask?

Sounds like a great day!

Mmmm Pecorino! The place looks lovely - and I love the name!

Palma-the restaurant and food look wonderful! I am literally drooling over the melted pecorino & honey!

Palma, I think that everything is better with pecorino on it (or at least, nearby!)

That restaurant looks so lovely, and I've never heard of lemon honey. It sounds divine, especially served with pecorino.
