Floridia Parmesan is a hard drum shaped wheel cheese, manufactured naturally from fresh pasteurized cow’s milk. This cheese is aged up to two years and is consistent with sharp flavours. The more mature the parmesan, the stronger the flavour, and the drier, crumblier and grainier the texture. The distinctively salty, slightly granular cheese and hard body makes it ideal for grating and sprinkled over pizza and pasta dishes or stirred into soup or risottos. Try serving it as parmesan shavings in a salad or make it the feature of a cheese board. Just don’t serve it straight from the fridge — take it out an hour or so beforehand, unwrap it and let it breathe to accentuate its aroma and flavour.
Note: This gratin is a great side dish or serve it for two at lunch with a green salad alongside. Serves 4 as a side dish.
