Assortment of Grating Cheeses
We assembled this quartet from among the world's favorite hard cheeses. Such cheeses are perfect for grating over pasta, soup, Caesar salad, or any other culinary creation that calls for a little cheese.
- Parmigiano Reggiano comes from the adjacent regions of Parma and Reggio Emilia and is often called the "King Of All Cheeses". There are many reasons for this title, namely its savory flavor, its huge size (80 lb. wheel) and its history dating back to the tenth century. (8 oz)
- Grana Padano comes from Italy's Po Valley and is made from the same ancient recipe as Parmigiano Reggiano. Not quite as salty as Parmigiano, Grana has a fruity finish and slightly softer texture. Our version is called Stravecchio Oro del Tempo, meaning it is extra aged and hand-selected for quality. (8 oz)
- Argentine Reggianito is a more modern cheese, made from pasteurized cow's milk. Initially, it was a copy of a Italian Parmigiano Reggiano, but over time it has developed a personality all its own. (8 oz)
- Pecorino Romano: Originally from Rome, today most Romano is made on the island of Sardinia. Made from sheep's milk in giant 66 lb. wheels, Pecorino Romano not only grates nicely, it also makes perfect shavings for Carpaccio or tricolor salads. (8 oz)
