Parmesan cheese

Parmigiano-Reggiano or Parmesan is a hard, granular cheese from Italy which is made from cows milk and is aged twelve to thirty-six months. It has been called a 'particularly perfect food'.

'Parmigiano-Reggiano' and 'Parmesan' were given Protected Designation of Origin and denote the cheeses made in the original provinces that produced it. Outside the EU, these two terms can be legally used for such cheese. This variety takes about 500 litres of milk for a single wheel of about 50kgs and needs to be aged for a year, costing around $1,000.
