Grana Padano

(Agriform) - 1 lb

Grana Padano is one of the most famous cheese of Italy. The name Grana was popularly bestowed upon the cheese because of its "grainy" consistency which was markedly different from the other cheeses known until then. It began to appear with greater frequency as an ingredient in the foods of aristocrats and commoners alike. Grana Padano is a cylindrical, cooked, semi-fat hard cheese which is matured slowly. It is a sweet and savory cheese that is produced in the regions of Piemonte, Lombardia, and Veneto. It may be used as a table cheese or for grating. A golden rind encases a white or straw-colored fine-grained cheese with crumbly fissures radiating outwards from the center. The taste is fragrant and delicate, and the cheese preserves its integrity for one or two years.

Region: Piedmont

The Piedmont region sits at the foot of the alps, bordering France and Switzerland. Its soaring mountains and rolling plains are home to some of Italy's most beloved cuisine, from egg-rich pastas to rich, salty cured meats. While food culture here is rooted in tradition, new and exciting variations are always just around the corner.

To quote Cheese.com: "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, savory and complex and the texture becomes more crumbly. Though similar to Parmigiano Reggiano Grana Padano is inexpensive because areas producing the cheese are bigger. Moreover, Grana is less crumbly, milder and less complex than its long-aged sibling." We really like this Ditalia offering!
