I have never heard of "cheese season," but apparently, we are in it! To celebrate my new favorite season, the Pecorino Romano Festival will be kicking off tomorrow and continuing through next week.
Taste This TV’s Chef Joseph Ciminera and other New York chefs will be offering free cheesy pasta (presumably made with Pecorino Romano) at events at restaurants around town. Free. Cheesy pasta.
More info is here.
