Parmigiano Reggiani DOP Cheese Aged 36 Months 1kg
Sold by: Vorrei
Country of Origin: Italy
This mountain parmesan cheese is artisanally produced at 1000m in the Appenines near Parma. Milk for the parmesan is collected from open pasture grazing cows on local farms and the parmesan is produced with raw milk. Raw milk is simply unpasteurised and Parmigiano Reggiano cannot actually be called Parmigiano Reggiano if it is not made from it. The raw milk contributes to the complex, full flavour and aroma that makes parmesan the king of cheese!
All DOP Parmesan must be aged for at least 12 months. Ours is matured for 36 months making it a deliciously nutty, crunchy cheese.
The DOP mark: As a DOP (PDO) 'Protected Denomination of Origin' cheese, our Parmesan has been guaranteed and certified by the Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium in Italy. This is the best guarantee of excellence in a European agri-food product. Production, processing and preparation of our cheese takes place exclusively in the Parmesan cheese DOP area of origin - any other Parmesan (and there are many, many copies) which does not have this mark is just cheese!
Unpasteurised cow's milk.
Parmesan is a very versatile hard cheese, excellent as a table cheese, often served with a good aged balsamic vinegar from Modena, truffle honey, pear mustard and fig jam. It also gives flavour to all of your recipes and is of course the cheese of choice to grate on pasta dishes.
Goes well with full-bodied red wines such as Super Tuscan, Chianti as well as with Prosecco.
Remember to remove from the fridge an hour or so before serving to bring up to room temperature.
Keep wrapped in naturally waxed paper in the fridge, ideally inside a slightly opened container so that the cheese still gets some oxygen. This Parmesan should keep for up to 2 months.
