Parmigiano Reggiano is a hard, granular cow's milk cheese which is cooked but not pressed and named after the producing areas near Parma in Italy. It is widely considered the 'king of cheeses' and has been produced for over 9 centuries.
Our Parmigiano Reggiano is matured for 24 months - the gold standard for this type of cheese. It is an essential addition to pasta dishes, stirred into soups and risottos and can also be just roasted and eaten as a snack. The slivers and chunks of the hardest parts of the crust can also be simmered in soup.
The words PARMIGIANO REGGIANO are stenciled in small dots all over the sides of the wheel: this is a mark of quality and a guarantee of the authenticity of this classic cheese. The words are etched into the molds, which are owned by the Consorzio; they are duly scrubbed off any cheeses that fail to meet the Consorzio's standards. About 8 percent of a given year's wheels are scrubbed of their letters and sent to a grating company.
We hand slice our cheeses and though we try our best to deliver the precise weight selected, the nature of cheese and their variable density can lead to variations in sizes.
In the instance that the hand cut cheese weight is greater than that advertised, we will not pass the additional charge on.
In the instance that the weight of the sliced cheese is significantly less than the advertised weight, we will at our discretion provide you with a voucher to cover the difference for your next shop.
We hope you find this approach fair.
