Grana Padano is a renowned Italian cheese that captivates the senses with its rich flavours and distinctive characteristics. Hailing from the Po River Valley in northern Italy, it is often hailed as one of Italy's finest and most beloved cheeses. This hard cheese is crafted from cow's milk, carefully selected from specific breeds of cows that graze on the fertile pastures of the region. The cheese-making process begins with the milk being heated and mixed with rennet, a natural enzyme that coagulates the milk and forms curds. The curds are then cut, cooked, and pressed to release the whey, resulting in a solid cheese wheel.
  • Visually, Grana Padano is a sight to behold. It features a pale yellow or straw-coloured interior with a natural rind that ranges in colour from pale to dark brown. Its texture is firm and granular, crumbly yet slightly creamy, providing a delightful mouthfeel that melts in the mouth.
  • The flavour profile of Grana Padano is robust, nutty, and savoury. It possesses a delicate sweetness with hints of caramel and fruit, balanced by a slight tanginess. As the cheese ages, it develops deeper and more complex flavours, enhancing its overall richness.
  • Grana Padano is a versatile cheese that can be enjoyed in various ways. It is commonly grated over pasta, risotto, or soups, where its robust flavours add depth and complexity to the dishes. It can also be enjoyed on a cheese platter, accompanied by fruits, nuts, and a glass of wine. Additionally, it is often used in cooking to elevate the flavour of gratins, sauces, and baked dishes.
