Mil Lel Pecorino

Mil Lel Pecorino

Cheese Type

Jack Frost, son of the manager of the Yahl Cheese and Butter Co-operative, purchased a small cheese factory at Mil Lel in the south-east of South Australia in 1925. He started with 21 employees and grew the business until 1951, when he sold it to Kraft Walker Cheese Co. The brand evolved to specialise in grana-style cheeses, which are now produced by the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory, Australia’s oldest dairy processor.

This pecorino is made in the style of the more traditional sheep’s milk pecorino from Italy, but from Australian cow’s milk.

The resulting product is a hard cheese ideal for grating or shaving purposes. It has a yellow rind with a moist yet slightly granular interior. The flavour is not unlike parmesan with creamy, savoury and slightly spicy notes.
