Parmigiano Reggiano DOP - 7.5lb
Known as the “king” of Italian cheeses, this robust entity--- Parmigiano Reggiano--- bears a royal lineage, dating back to 1901, when the Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano Parmesan, was established among the Italian cheese-producing provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Mantua.
This historic consortium was formed to introduce a fair trade union among the makers, merchants and traders of this esteemed, regionally produced cheese. Heroic efforts went into properly naming it, but a roomful of proud Italian cheese makers couldn’t decide between the two, final choices: “Parmigiano” or “Reggiano”. Need we say more?
Our Parmesan Reggiano cheese, from the Emilio Romagna region of Italy, bears the protected manufacturing seal of approval originated by the Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano-Parmesan, indicating its “DOP”, or “protected designation of origin”. We offer this 24-month-aged cheese in convenient ½-pound size for snacking right off the wheel, or generously sprinkled over piping hot pasta dishes. Buon Appetito!
This quarter wheel will be the main event at any party or event! Not too big, but will feed everyone!
