10Parmigiano-Reggiano: The King of Cheeses

Parmigiano-Reggiano, often referred to as the “King of Cheeses,” is a hard, granular cheese that hails from the regions of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, and parts of Bologna and Mantua.

Made from raw cow’s milk, this cheese is aged for a minimum of 12 months, with some varieties maturing for up to 36 months or more. The result is a cheese with a rich, nutty flavor and a complex aroma. Parmigiano-Reggiano is perfect for grating over pasta, risotto, and soups, or enjoyed on its own with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a glass of fine wine.
