Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano
Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano

 

Dry, aged, and slightly salty—yet also buttery and nutty. Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano is still handmade exactly as it was 700 years ago, with apprentices studying the craft for a decade before making their first wheel. This cheese is made in a specific area in the provinces of Bologna, Mantua, Modena, Parma and Reggio Emilia because these territories are home to plants and grasses that give its unique flavor. There are many imitators that call themselves Parmesan, but the real one is easily spotted by its name etched into the rind of every 75 lb. wheel. Showcase the quality of this cheese in our Publix Aprons Roasted Garlic and Parmigiano-Reggiano Mashed Potatoes or Publix Aprons Parmesan, Garlic, and Herb Breadsticks.

  • Origin: Italy
  • Available in: Wedges
