Cut & Share is an awareness-raising campaign whose aim is to highlight and inform about the quality and traceability of two European premium products with Designation of Origin: Pecorino Toscano DOP and Prosciutto Toscano DOP.
These two icons of the Tuscan food and wine traditions can be used to enrich the taste of several recipes. Pecorino Toscano DOP, produced solely from sheep’s milk, can be found in the fresh (soft) and matured (semi-hard) versions. The two varieties can be defined with two, almost opposite, characteristics: delicate, yet with temperament, and unlike other Italian sheep’s milk cheeses, Pecorino Toscano DOP is milder and more harmonious. Prosciutto Toscano DOP is made exclusively from fresh pigs’ legs in facilities located in Tuscany, its meat is then dry cured, using salt, pepper, and the natural herbs and aromas of the region. The resulting flavour is characteristic: delicate and masterfully heightened by the special aromas of Tuscany, which have made Prosciutto Toscano DOP famous around the world.
