Grana Padano PDO
The Grana Padano PDO Cheese recipe dates back to the Middle Ages. It's a hard cheese made with milk from Italian cows, it crumbles easily and its ripe flavour melts on the tongue. A minimum of 10 months is required for it to ripen. It is protected by a certificate of origin (DOP).
The name comes from its distinctive granular texture – grana, which means grain in English.
The fragrant and subtley flavour makes it an excellent addition to cream soups. It is a perfect addition to cooked dishes like spaghetti or risotto. Crumbled or thinly sliced, it enhances the flavour of salads. It is also suitable for dips. Best enjoyed with a dry red wine. Thanks to the unique technology, it is wrapped in a sterile film to keep it fresh and highly nutritious for a long time.
