This raw cows milk cheese is made from the Freisian breed of cows who are exclusively fed local mountain forage, leaving this very special parm with an exceptionally smooth, creamy pate that helps its unique bright flavor burst in your mouth. A moist texture interspersed with the satisfying crunch of the cheese crystals, there is none of the bitter finish to this cheese that is so common in imported parm. Awarded the Prodotto di Montagna, a designation of Parmigiano-Reggiano reserved for a handful of cheeses, whether you use this cheese to top your pasta or on its own as an antipasta, you cannot go wrong. This cheese is make from unpasteurized milk and animal rennet.
Essex Street Cheese was founded in New York City in 2006. When they began, they sold just one cheese, Comté from Fort St. Antoine, at the Essex Street Market on Delancey Street in the Lower East Side. Though business has expanded and they no longer operate out of that shop, today they remain very focused on the highest quality cheese and only import a handful of iconic cheeses. Essex Street works directly with cheesemakers and agers to select consistently flavorful wheels and ship them from the source to you with minimal time in warehouse to ensure you are getting the best quality cheese at it's peak time.
Store in the fridge and consume by the date on the package. Once opened, wrap in cheese paper for longest life.
