Parmigiano Reggiano Academy Teaches Taste

Recently we were invited to participate in the Parmigiano Reggiano Academy featuring the fine art of cheese tasting. The Academy, which was originally an online tasting course, is now a class being held at specialty stores around the country. To know the history of Parmigiano Reggiano you have to go back in time. Way, way back. Nine centuries back to when the Benedictine and Cistercian Monks devised a way to produce cheese that would last over a long period of time.

Known as the King of Cheeses, Parmigiano Reggiano is deserving of the respect usually associated with fine wine. Cheese tasting is actually quite an elegant experience: color and texture; aroma; mouthfeel; and, taste. Each of the three varying ages of Parmigiano Reggiano had very distinct and unique flavors and consistencies.
