The aromatic herbs of the Lattari mountain pastures, such as thyme, oregano and marjoram give the milk and cheese a delicious flavour.
How to enjoy:
Simply serve with olive oil and fresh aromatic herbs, such as wild fennel, parsley and basil. Pair with a robust red wine or sweet Marsala.
The name is coming from the similarity of the sacks in which the cheese was transferred by the traders at the beginning of the century to carry this cheese in different cities. Sacks that they resembled the hats worn by the monks
