Hera - Ovicaprino del Pardu

Hera, cheese made using a mix of pasteurised whole sheep and goat milk, owes its name to the Greek goddess of marriage and faithfulness, as well as queen of Mount Olympus.
 

Its paste is white - pale yellow, compact, with a few eyes, it has a pleasant, round and slightly spicy flavour.
Its ageing period is over 60 days.
 

Like classic pecorino, it is an all-round cheese, good for all moments of a meal, excellent served with a glass of red wine, it adds a prestigious extra touch if grated on pasta and is also very good paired with all types of jam.
