Italy – Traditional Cheeses of Sicily

Episode 2, from Season 5

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a long history of traditional cheese making that is influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Normans - and of course, the Italians. Will looks at the many flavours of Sicilian Pecorino, and visits one of the last farmhouse dairies making a saffron-flavoured cheese from ewe's milk. Finally, he finds himself in a Dickensian cheese-maturing room that is several centuries behind the times.
