Cheese of the Month for October is il Giardino Parmigiano Reggiano and the region is comes from is Italy.
Celebrate the King of Cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano – aged 22 months. More than 700 years ago, Italian cheesemakers called “Casaros” took great pride in making Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, apprenticing for many years before being allowed to make even one wheel on their own. Today Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is still handmade with the utmost care, exactly the way it was in the 13th century. Made of partly skimmed cow’s milk, il Giardino brand’s Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is characterized by its rich flavor and compact, granular texture. High protein content, smooth digestion and natural ingredients make it not only a tasty choice, but a healthy one as well. Parmigiano Reggiano is commonly grated over pasta dishes, stirred into soups and risottos, and eaten on its own. It is often shaved or grated over other dishes like salads.
