This is a multi award winning Parmesan cheese from the classic Pamigiano Reggiano DOP mountain area around Bologna and Modena.
A Parmesan cheese so young isn’t easy to find in the UK. It is mild and creamy and is much softer than the older more traditional parmesans, but with all the goodness common to all Parmesans.
Use it much as you would a fine cheddar. Loved by adults and children alike, its vibrant, fresh creamy taste makes it unbeatable in salads or on sandwiches. Lovely on its own too!
This Parmigiano Reggiano is making its debut in the UK and you will be hard pushed to find a better one! (and if you do we would love to know about it!).
About the Producers: Caseificio Fior di Latte
Situated in the beautiful mountain area of the Parmesan DOP region surrounded by lush green meadows, the conditions are perfect for milk production. The dairy is a cooperative of over 100 small farms that produce small quantities of excellent milk destined for cheese production.
Artisan experts then transform this milk using timeless methods to produce this lovely Parmesan cheese which is only sold in 2 small local shops near the farm. This Parmesan has won many awards including 2 gold medals at the Cheese Olympics in Verona! It’s older brother, the 30 month parmesan, has won the Double Gold at the 2010 Great taste awards, the Oscars of quality food in the UK.
NB. This is an artisan cheese and is hand cut so weights may vary slightly.
