    It tastes like shit. Dudes seem to love it. Its not a good substitute for parm yet folk want to act like it is. Its not that much less than parm. It tastes like shit. I think that's a good start.

    uh, no. padano is a substitute for parm (actually parm is a subset of padanos). pecorino is sheep's milk cheese (pecora=sheep). it has a very forceful funk. i love it. parm is great for a delicate sauce, but for something like a robust puttanesca, with lots of olives, capers, etc., pecorino. it's also good in caccio-pepe -- basically little butter, cheese, LOTS of black pepper. eta: oh, forgot to add: Edinaphail

    Itt: dudes don't read what I write. So I said its no substitute OTHERS say it is. I just don't get the love for a shitty cheese. Foodguys explenation is ignored because I don't put cheese in puttanesca nor on top of pasta and I prefer parm

    wtf?

    Pecorino is a form of Italian satire based around a lovable rascal or rogue, something like Calvino's Baron in the Trees (or maybe Huck Sawyer when translated into Latin). If you substituted a book for Parm, then Of Course it tastes like shit. Jeebus, what kind of dolt are you, anyway?

    My family does not come from these sorts of places. I like Pecorino, but there is a woman at the cheese store near by who gives me a hard time when I need it for cooking. She starts going on about this pecorino and that and blah, blah, blah. I can't stop her even if I know what I want.

    No, she is a self proclaimed Foodie. When I need help, though, she knows cheese very well.

    Before I could stop myself, I audibly said "ugh" when a woman at a recently opened eatery near my house described herself as such. There was a really awkward pause with eye contact, before I said "excuse me."
