Product description

    Details

    Did you know? In the EU only genuine Parmigiano Reggiano can be sold as Parmesan, however in the US Parmesan is a looser term which includes various other hard cheeses. 

     

    Parmigiano Reggiano can only be produced in restricted areas - the provinces of Modena, Parma and Reggio Emilia and partially Bologna and Mantova.

     

    The Parmigiano we have selected has been aged for 24 months, generally considered to be its peak, has a fullness of flavour and an unmistakeable aroma.

     

    Try it....

    It is an extremely versatile cheese, wonderful for grating over pasta, stirring into soups, shaving onto salads or just eating chunks drizzled with a good quality balsamic vinegar. 

     

    Ingredients 

    Unpasteurised cow's MILK, salt, rennet

     

    Some Parmigiano History

    At the beginning of the 1900s a 'Consortium' of Chambers of Commerce from Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Mantua got together to try an establish a legal way of protecting the provenance of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

    Details were discussed on and off for over 50 years before official legal approvals were granted in 1964. At this point the Consortium or "Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano", was joined by all manufacturers of Parmigiano Cheese and they agreed the introduction of the 'mark of origin' - the dotted inscription "Parmigiano-Reggiano" encircling the wheels of cheese.  

     

    ❆ How to Store

    Parmigiano Reggiano needs to be refrigerated.  It comes pre-packed from the producer and we will protect it with an ice pack in your parcel. When you receive your parcel you should put the Parmigiano Reggiano in the fridge where, unopened, it will have an expiry of about 4 weeks. Once opened, wrap the Parmigiano Reggiano in tin foil and keep it in the fridge - it will typically last for 2-3 weeks stored like this.
