After explaining the sustainable practices on the farm, Ulysses led us all back to a warm room where he would make some cheese for us. Pecora is the Italian word for sheep, thus the name Pecorino for the cheese.
|After donning his lab coat, Ulysses began the cheese making demonstration.
|Curds and Whey
|Shaping the cheese
|Putting the cheese into the molds

Once we'd had our lunch, and thanked our host, we were off to a walk about in Montepulciano. The rain continued to fall, but our group was intent on getting the most out of our days in Umbria. So grateful to have been able to share my favorite places with them. Ciao for now.
