PAT - Traditional Agri-Foodstuffs


History
Cheese with the so-called "saltarello worms" is very ancient, like the town or the mountains it comes from: as a matter of fact, this special and very tasty pecorino cheese, processed according to ancient methods that have been handed down till present times, was born in the lands of Abruzzi, characterized by a strong sheep breeding tradition. Known with the dialect name of cace fraceche for the particular production method, the delicious cheese specialty marcetto enabled the recovery of pecorino cheese rounds that had small defects on the rind, mainly given by cracks or fissures.
