Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
As a matter of fact, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is one of the key cheeses on any cheese board. Made in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Parmigiano is produced in the shape of large cylinders weighing approximately 80 pounds each. According to the trademark laws in Italy, the cheese cannot be called “Parmigiano Reggiano” unless it’s made in Italy according to a specific recipe.
When cut into, the hard smooth exterior reveals a cheese with perfect crystalline texture, a piquant, salty flavor, and a great aroma. Nebbiolo wines are a sensation match for this King of Cheeses!
(Pronounced par-mee-JEE-ah-noh reh-JEE-ah-noh.)
