Recipes with cheese:
cooking with Parmigiano Reggiano

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese has a distinctive flavour which, on the one hand, can be enjoyed on its own, and on the other hand, enables it to be combined with other food products. Thanks to its flavour it can be used in the kitchen in a variety of different ways and can enhance recipes and dishes, adding a refined and sophisticated flavour.

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is a PDO hard cheese which is extremely versatile for ‘the ways’ in which you can use it: you can grate it , cut it into cubes or shavings , or give it the shape you want depending on the dish you want to create. In addition, it is full of nutrients, and you can use it on a daily basis to prepare appetisers and desserts, pasta, meat or vegetable dishes.

There are many recipes with cheese which will enable you to improve your daily diet.

Forvegan cheese is also equally versatile in the kitchen , a cheese substitute made from non-animal products which is intended for people who follow a specific nutritional regime which excludes the use of animal derivatives.

Antipasti and aperitifs: parmigiano and cold meats

Parmigiano Reggiano is perfect for preparing antipasti and aperitifs, especially when you do not have enough time to prepare something more elaborate. Cut into shavings  or cubes  it can be served along with:

⦁ different types of cold meats and hams, which is the classic combination
⦁ sauces, if you want to offer something more sophisticated
⦁ fruit, such as strawberries, pears, apples or grapes, if you would like an unusual combination
⦁ white wine, to serve an aperitif

First courses: pasta and soups

One of the most common uses of Parmigiano Reggiano is the classic ‘dusting’ to season a pasta, rice, gnocchi or gnocchetti dish, but also to add flavour to soups, creamed vegetables, broths and minestroni. Grated Parmigiano Reggiano can be used in recipes that require a more complex preparation such as aubergine parmigiana, a potato gateau or a savoury tart.

Second courses: meat and fish, meatballs and omelettes

Parmigiano is ideal for enhancing meat or fish-based recipes. Furthermore, you can experiment and try unique combinations that enhance all the flavours of the ingredients of a dish. One of the most common uses is shavings on thin slices of cured meat or fish or on a steak, as well as adding grated Parmigiano Reggiano into the mixture when you make meatballs or omelets. All these dishes are enhanced just by adding Parmigiano Reggiano to them.

Vegetables: salads and non-animal products

Cheese is suitable for adding flavour to seasonal vegetable dishes. Salads can be enhanced by adding shavings or cubes of Parmigiano Reggiano to them. Even the preparation of more elaborate dishes such as stuffed peppers, can benefit from the addition of grated Parmigiano Reggiano . Those who have excluded animal-based products from their diet can add flavour to their vegetable dishes with vegan cheese shavings .

Desserts: mousse, cheesecake, ice cream

While it’s hard to believe, Parmigiano Reggiano can be used in the preparation of sweet dishes and desserts with a unique flavour, with surprising results. If you have never imagined making a Parmigiano mousse, cheesecake or ice-cream, think again – you only need to read the recipes on our website and you will be amazed by the sweet side of Parmigiano Reggiano. As a dessert, we also recommend eating it with dry fruit or seasonal fresh fruit.
