Parmesan cheese comes from Parma in Italy. It’s named after that region. This dry, sharp aged cheese is world famous and very popular. Legend says it was developed as far back as the middle ages. Today, making Parmigiana Reggiano cheese takes 18% of Italy’s milk production. The name Parmigiana Reggiano is protected by trade laws. But, outside of the European Union, cheese made in the style of Parmgiana Reggiano can use the name Parmesan.
The strong flavor of Parmesan cheese makes it very versatile. That’s why it is one of the world’s most popular cheeses. It tops tomato sauces in pasta and meat dishes, risottos and soups, artisan pizzas, grated over salads, or for rich cream sauces.
