Solo Di Bruna Parmigiano Reggiano
Parmigiano Reggiano is clearly the most popular girl at school, and our Solo di Bruna Parmigiano holds the honors of both prom queen AND valedictorian. Although 365 factories in Emilia-Romagna have their hands in this cheese pot, we buy our wheels from the only four cheesemakers that produce just nine wheels each day from milk of solely Italian Brown cows- '' Solo di Bruna.'' The raw afternoon milk is left overnight, allowing the cream to rise to the top while complex flavors to begin to develop. The complexity grows through 24 months of aging, resulting in a Parm that is classic and unfailing: salty, umami-laden flakiness yields to deeply buttery and caramel notes with a nutty crunch that's hopelessly addictive - all from a cheese that's survived Crusades, two World Wars, and the escapades of Silvio Berlusconi. Grate mounds atop your pasta, toss the rind in your next soup, or just lob off a hunk, foist a glass of Barolo, and go to town.
