Brown Cow Parmigiano Reggiano DOP

Producer: Valserena Origin: Emilia Romagna, Italy

Parmigiano Reggiano made with brown cow (Bruna Alpina) milk isn’t too far a cry from its Red cow and Fresian brethren, but for true afficiandos the difference is palpable: a bit sweeter with a very delicate complexity. Valserena’s variation on the classic ingredient cheese deserves to be highlighted in a simple risotto or grated liberally over pasta.
