- Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano, Parmesan...
Many people think that the massive wheels of Grana Padano, the semi-aged hard Italian cheese, are maybe a cheaper knock-off of better known Parmigiano-Reggiano, In fact, Grana is a great cheese in its own right, and well-known in Italy. Grana Padano is a subtler and less nutty and salty than Parmigiano, with a more delicate flavour that is perfect for the risotto or when you don't want to overpower a dish. Grana Padano and Parmigiano-Reggiano are both northern Italian cheeses originally made by monks, and both come in different lengths of aging. In Italian, Grana is the word for grain, and it's actually the word for a type of cheese whose tiny crags and crannies look a little like specks of grain, So Parmigiano-Reggiano, is actually a type of Grana. The flavour differences stem from two big differences between the two: First, Grana Padano is made only with partially skimmed milk, while Parmigiano is made from a mix of whole and skimmed milk. second, while they are made in the same basic part of Italy, they are also made in different regions from cows that graze on different pastures - meaning the milk tastes a little different (and also changes slightly in flavour) throughout the year). It is for these reasons that Parmigiano Reggiano has a stronger, more complex, perhaps nuttier and saltier taste – while Grana Padano has a softer, subtler taste then Grana Padano is more usually used in cooking, while Parmigiano is more often grated on top of a dish…. and eaten in chunks with a majestic Italian red wine like Barolo. And what is Parmesan cheese? Parmesan cheese has a rich history going all the way back to the Middle Ages. The first record of Parmigiano-Reggiano is from 1254. Around 900 years ago. During the 1300s and 1400s, Benedictine monks had a monopoly on parmesan cheese and would export it to different regions of Italy. As the cheese became more popular, it spread to the rest of Europe This popularity meant that Parmigiano-Reggiano imitators popped up all over the place, so Italy issued a decree that placed exclusive control over the production and sale of this cheese in the hands of the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese Conzorzio. In 1955, the official name of authentic “parmesan” cheese became Parmigiano-Reggiano. Then, if you want to buy the real thing, you should purchase Parmigiano-Reggiano. All the cheeses labelled simply “parmesan” are not Italian.
- The New Olive Oil - L'olio Nuovo
Extra virgin olive oil is the only oil that we eat raw. It is the only one that is made by simply crushing and pressing the fruit, grain or vegetable. There is no refining, heating, extracting, use of chemicals or other process; just cold (no heat applied) pressing of the olives. Every other oil (canola, corn, safflower, peanut, and even regular olive oil) goes through a refining process using high heat and chemicals to extract the oil. Extra virgin olive oil is unique because you are essentially eating a component of the raw fruit, and this is the secret of its spectacular health benefits and wonderful taste. A key part of the Mediterranean diet, it’s rich in monounsaturated fats and loaded with polyphenols, compounds found in plants that have antioxidant properties Extra-virgin olive oil helps reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, protect against Alzheimer’s disease, and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and more. But while extra-virgin olive oil is pretty hard to beat, there’s another kind of olive oil that’s. Extra-virgin olive oil helps reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, protect against Alzheimer’s disease, and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and more. But while extra-virgin olive oil is pretty hard to beat, there’s another kind of olive oil that’s even healthier. The "Olio nuovo". What is "olio nuovo"? New oil or “olio nuovo” in Italian, is the freshest extra virgin olive oil you can get with the iridescent green of the just crushed olives, a peppery kick and pleasantly bitter burst indicative of its freshness. It is bottled unfiltered straight after pressing so is extra virgin olive oil in its most raw and fresh state. This is why we love Olio Nuovo: it is a true and authentic extra virgin olive oil experience. How should you use it? Olio Nuovo is different from other extra virgin olive oils because of the way it’s made. It typically has stronger flavours and extra pungency because it is the very freshest olive oil you can find. One of our favourite ways to savour this once-a-year treat is to Grill thick slices of bread until crisp and toasty, pour your fresh olio Nuovo all over the bread then add a few pinches of coarse sea salt. Pour a glass of wine and enjoy! It’s also delicious mixed with good quality aged balsamic vinegar over salads, it’s perfect for spicing up roasted veggies and it’s a fantastic finishing oil for soups, pasta and more How to pair Olio Nuovo with food Creamy Cheeses + Olio Nuovo Creamy cheeses (think mozzarella, burrata, and ricotta) are a perfect vehicle to let the complex flavours of Olio Nuovo shine. Why it works: The richness of the cheese provides balance to the robust boldness of the oil. Roasted Veggies + Olio Nuovo Roasted vegetables like carrot, pumpkin and sweet potato work beautifully drizzled with Olio Nuovo. Why it works: The subtle sweetness is the perfect foil for the grassy, bitter notes in the oil. Roasted Meats + Olio Nuovo Holiday roasts are delicious with Olio Nuovo. Why it works: Heartier meats with rich flavours are complemented by the peppery complexities of the oil.
