Ghidetti Parmigiano Reggiano P.D.O
Parmigiano Reggiano PDO is produced with raw cow’s milk. It’s a cooked and un-pressed hard cheese, known as the “King of Cheeses” thanks to its qualities.
Appearance and Taste:
Parmigiano Reggiano PDO has a cylindrical shape with a diameter of 14-18 inches, a height of 8-10 inches and a weight of 66-92 pounds. The rind is natural golden yellow in color. The cheese is hard, with a color that varies from light to deep straw-yellow. The texture is minutely grainy and flaky. The minimum maturation period must be 12 months. It has a delicate flavor and fragrant aroma that is savory but not piquant.
It is said that Parmigiano Reggiano PDO has been “a great cheese for at least nine centuries” referring to its inimitable characteristics of quality and its history. First references to this hard cheese are dated back to 1200-1300 and today the Parmigiano Reggiano PDO is still done with the same ingredients (milk, rennet and salt, with no additives), techniques and tradition of these years.
Parmigiano Reggiano PDO is a key ingredient for Italian dishes: it’s grated on Pasta and is perfect to be eaten alone in flakes in salads or with fruit or honey or jams. It has many properties, in addition to being highly digestible it also features a high content of bio-available calcium, with a complete absence of additives and preservatives, a wealth of mineral micro and macro-nutrients, as well as offering a pleasant and satisfying sensorial profile. These characteristics have resulted in Parmigiano Reggiano being included in the diet of cosmonauts. If vacuum-packed, Parmigiano Reggiano PDO should be conserved in the fridge at a temperature of 2-6°C/43-46°F; if not, it is best to keep it vacuum-sealed or in transparent plastic food bags. Suggested Wine Pairings: Prosecco, Franciacorta.
