Become Enamored By Parmesan

The cheese that’s so revered people would trade their homes for it!

Parmesan is a hard cheese that is sharp, fruity and nutty in flavour with a naturally salty taste. Gritty in texture, this cheese is great when grated.

Originating in and around the province of Parma, Italy, the first to begin making this cheese were monks in the Middle Ages.

The first recorded reference to Parmesan proves its star status in the cheese realm. Documents from 1254 depict a noble woman’s agreement to trade her house for an annual supply of cheese produced in Parma. Talk about a cheese lover!

Even Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio became enamored by the cheese and immortalized it in Decameron, where he describes an imaginary gourmet paradise in which cooks roll macaroni down a mountain of parmesan to secure a heaping even coating of the snowy cheese.
