Cheese of the Week

Grano Padano - Grated

We have a choice of cheeses which you can add to your order.

Grated Grana Padano, which is made throughout the Po River Valley in north eastern Italy, made from unpasteurised, semi-skimmed milk and generally aged for two years. At the end of the cheese-making process, Grana Padano develops a firm, thick and deeply straw-coloured rind protecting the fragrant, dry, flaking interior. Grana means “grainy” in Italian, which is reflected in the fine granular texture with an intensely sweet flavour. We have 2 sizes 80g (just enough for this recipe) £1.70 or 140g (perfect for adding to soups and pasta dishes) £2.70.

You can also use our hand cut 18 month matured Parmigiano-Reggiano which has a stronger, more complex, nuttier and saltier taste than Grana Padano. £6.00 approx 200g
