Description

DESCRIPTION: 

The cheese is aged for a period of 24 months. During this time, it is nurtured like fine wine, until it becomes pale golden with a slightly granular flaky texture and a nutty mildly, savory flavor. Our authentic EMMA Parmigiano Reggiano is easily recognizable by the imprint Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium’s oval firebrand on the rind. EMMA Parmigiano Reggiano works well as both a table cheese for snacking or for dessert and as the world’s premier grating cheese transforming simple pasta dishes with its delectable flavor and aroma.
