Parmigiano Reggiano

Parmigiano Reggiano is a renowned Italian cheese known for its exceptional quality, rich flavor, and granular texture. This cheese has a protected designation of origin (PDO) status, meaning it can only be produced in specific regions of Italy, including Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna to the west of the Reno River, and Mantua to the south of the Po River. Parmigiano Reggiano is made from raw cow’s milk, and its production follows strict traditional methods. The cheese undergoes a lengthy aging process, typically lasting 24 months or more, contributing to its robust and complex flavor profile. Parmigiano Reggiano is versatile and can be grated over pasta, salads, or soups, or enjoyed in chunks as a standalone snack. Its nutty, salty taste and crumbly texture make it a staple in Italian cuisine and a beloved cheese worldwide
