Parmigiano-Reggiano is a traditional, unpasteurized, hard cheese made from cow's, skimmed milk.
It has a shape of a drum with sticky, hard, yellow to orange rind. The aroma is sweet and fruity, the color fresh yellow and the taste - fruity, like pineapple. Parmigiano Reggiano's flavor is unmistakably piquant.
Primarily a grating cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano is a great topping for soups, pasta dishes, veal chicken or salads. In Italy, this cheese is sold in large, grainy chunks, chiseled from the shiny drum that carries its name emblazoned on the rind.
