The region in which Parmigiano-Reggiano can be produced, according to EU and Italian PDO legislation

Parmigiano-Reggiano or Parmesan (/ˌpɑːrmɪˈdʒɑːnoʊ rɛˈdʒɑːnoʊ/, Italian: [parmiˈdʒaːno redˈdʒaːno]) is an Italian hard, granular cheese produced from cow's milk and aged 12–36 months.


It is named after the producing areas, the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, the part of Bologna west of the Reno, and Modena (all in Emilia-Romagna); and the part of Mantua (Lombardy) south of the Po. Parmigiano is the Italian adjective for Parma and Reggiano that for Reggio Emilia.

Both "Parmigiano-Reggiano" and "Parmesan" are protected designations of origin (PDO) for cheeses produced in these provinces under Italian and European law.[1] Outside the EU, the name "Parmesan" can legally be used for similar cheeses, with only the full Italian name unambiguously referring to PDO Parmigiano-Reggiano.

It has been called the "King of Cheeses"[2] and a "practically perfect food".[3]

I like Parmesan-Reggiano but I prefer Pecorino Romano for most foods. Scamorza is nice too.

And with either Parmesan or Romano, if it isn't made in Italy it isn't the real thing.

When visiting my cousins in Italy, we went right to the cheese makers to get cheese, both fresh and dried varieties.
