Grated Parmesan, also known as Parmesan cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano, is a hard, granular cheese originating from Italy. It is one of the most popular and widely recognized cheeses in the world. Grated Parmesan is made from cow's milk and is named after the regions of Parma and Reggio Emilia in Italy where it is traditionally produced. The cheese is carefully crafted using traditional methods, resulting in a high-quality product known for its rich flavour and distinct nutty and salty taste. The production of Parmesan cheese involves a rigorous process that starts with the selection of high-quality milk from cows fed on a specific diet. The milk is then heated and mixed with rennet, a natural enzyme that helps curdle the milk. The resulting curds are cut into small pieces and cooked in large copper vats. After cooking, the curds are allowed to settle and are then molded into large wheels. These wheels are aged for a minimum of 12 months, and some are aged for even longer periods, up to 36 months or more, to develop a more intense flavour.
  • Grated Parmesan is made by finely shredding or grating the aged cheese wheels. It has a pale golden color and a dry, crumbly texture. The cheese has a strong and complex flavor profile, with notes of fruitiness, nuttiness, and a pleasant savoury umami taste. The ageing process gives grated Parmesan its characteristic grainy texture and enhances its flavour, making it an excellent choice for adding depth and richness to various dishes.
  • Grated Parmesan is a versatile ingredient used in many cuisines worldwide. It is a staple in Italian cooking, where it is commonly sprinkled over pasta dishes such as spaghetti, lasagna, and risotto. It also pairs well with vegetables, salads, soups, and even desserts. Grated Parmesan can be enjoyed on its own as a snack or used as a topping for pizzas, sandwiches, and bread.
  • Grated Parmesan is a delicious and versatile cheese known for its robust flavour, grainy texture, and culinary versatility. Whether used as a finishing touch or as a key ingredient, it adds a delightful and distinct taste to a wide range of dishes.
