Grana Padano vs.Parmigiano-Reggiano.
After watching Barefoot Contessa today, a interesting tid bit was mentioned. If Parmigiano-Reggiano is a little to much on the wallet, try Grana Padano which is very similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano. The process of producing this type of cheese is different from the strict regulations of Parmigiano-Reggiano but can still provide the same flavoring. So next time your in the market, pick up some Grana Padano and add to your favorite pasta, salad or try dipped in some balsamic cream.

I finally just put the two cheeses to a taste test. I found that Grana Padano left an unpleasant burning sensation on the tip of my tongue whereas Reggiano was very typical of parmesean. Thumbs up for Reggiano. It does pinch the wallet but, a little goes a long way.ReplyDelete
