Showing availability for delivery on Friday 3rd December

Description

Grana Padano, granted DOP on 12 June 1996, is one of the few cheeses that can possibly compete with the King of Cheeses; Parmigiano-Reggiano. Created by the Cistercian monks of Chiaravalle in the 12th century, it is still made throughout the Po River Valley in northeastern Italy. DOP stands for Denominazione di Origine Protetta which means Protected Designation of Origin. This means all milk needs to be sourced within a certain area and the cheese also produced in the area using traditional methods. It is the mark of optimal quality and high standards.

Produced in:

Italy

The Cheese Merchant says

The cheese is made from unpasteurised, semi-skimmed cow’s milk from two milking. At the end of the cheese making process, Grana Padano develops a firm, thick and deeply straw-coloured rind protecting the fragrant, dry, flaking interior. Grana means “grainy” in Italian which is reflected in the fine granular texture with an intensely sweet flavour. As Grana Padano ages, the flavours become pronounced, savoury and complex and the texture becomes more crumbly. Though similar to Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano is inexpensive because areas producing the cheese are bigger.
