The term ‘grana’ was used originally to indicate a cheese characterised by the grainy texture of the cheese produced in Valle Padana from the 11th Century. The fire-branded Grana Padano trademark comes from the Consortium for cheeses that have aged for at least 9 months after they were verified as meeting the requirements and provisions of production specifications, and qualified as an authentic Grana Padano.
Parmigiano Reggiano, otherwise known as ‘the King of cheeses’ is produced with different degrees of maturation. Fresh milk is processed at 3 in the morning the day after collection, and the cheese wheels remain in brine for around 21 days before being transferred to maturation plants where they sit for 12 to 36 months. Similar to the Grana Padano, this cheese is great for soups, pasta dishes, goes well with veal and chicken and is ideal for salads.
