Parmesan, or Parmigiano-Reggiano to give it its proper title, originates from Italy's Parma region, and is one of the world’s most popular and iconic cheeses. Only cheese stamped with the official Parmigiano Reggiano mark, as a guarantee of its origin, can be truly called Parmesan.
Made with fragrant unpasteurised milk and carefully matured over a long period, anything from 18 to 48 months, Parmesan is a yellow, almost honey-coloured, hard grainy cheese with a crumbly texture and typically intense flavour - both tangy and piquant. Some would say that Parmesan perfectly embodies ‘umami’, the ‘savoury’ taste; one of the five basic taste types.
There are innumerable uses of Parmesan, beyond just grating over a classic bolognese sauce, which in its simplicity is divine; Parmesan shavings can be deliciously partnered with all kinds of salads, as well as used within cooking, for example a chunk of Parmesan within a simmering pot of minestrone soup transforms the flavour into something sublimely Italian.
This pretty, yet practical vessel is the authentic way of serving grated Parmesan, or in fact any other grated cheese that you may fancy, giving your dining table a classic twist.
