Our goal is to offer the best and most diverse Italian cheese selection anywhere. We also carry fine cheese from
France, Spain, Greece, and other European Countries. And of course, we carry many domestic cheeses, including
artisinal farmstead cheeses. We also represent many large producers of Italian style cheeses that have become the
                     staples of many American kitchens, both in restaurants and in our homes.

Although Parmigiano Reggiano has earned the reputation as the king of Italian cheese, Its method of production is
quite similar to Grana Padana. Both are made from the same ingredients, milk and rennet, and both are made
from combining the evening’s milk with the morning milkand then heating the milk in a cauldron, curdling it with the
rennet, gathering the curds into a ball, shaping the ball into a wheel, and subsequently aging the wheel for two or
more years. The end result is a milk concentrate that collapses 8 quarts of milk into 1 pound of cheese; it is rich in
protein and extremely rich in calcium, and has much less fat than one might expect. No wonder Italian physicians
prescribe it for those who require extra protein or calcium in their diets, especially pregnant women!
Grana does have a reputation for being more commercially produced, resulting in a cheese that does not rise to
the standards of Reggiano, but there are many fantastic producers also!

   Grana Padano (D.O.P) - A classic grating and table cheese from the
   Northern provinces of Italy. Grana is a hard, grainy-textured cows
  milk cheese. Its name grana comes from the characteristic graininess
     that becomes more pronounced as the cheese ages. Grate it into
  soups or on pasta or eat it by the chunk with tomatoes, onions, bal-
                                samic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.

  Ricotta is a traditional whey cheese made from cow's milk. It should be a firm but not solid paste of
  fine, moist, delicate grains. To make ricotta, citric acid is added to whey to encourage destabiliza-
  tion and separation and the temperature is quickly raised to 185 degrees. Proteins separate from
   the whey and rise and coagulate; the proteins (lactalbumin) are skimmed off and put in a wicker
                 basket to drain for two days after which the cheese is ready for market.

Mozzarella
Mozzarella is one of the stretched curd (pasta filata) cheeses. The cheese-
maker kneads the curd with his hands, like a baker making bread, until a
smooth, shiny paste is obtained, a strand of which he pulls out and lops off,
forming the individual mozzarella ("mozzare" in Italian in fact means to lop
off). These in turn are put into cold water and then to soak in brine.

                                    Mozzarella is a fresh, stringy textured cheese with a porcelain white color
                                 It has an extremely thin rind and delicate taste. When cut, it produces a wa-
                                   tery fluid with the aroma of milk enzymes. Typically its shape is round , but
                                    it is also produced in small bite- sized shapes (ovoline and bocconcini) and
                                                                                                  plaits (trecce).

                         Buffalo milk Mozzarella is entirely different in its texture and
                         flavor from Mozzarella made from Cow’s Milk. It is sweet and
                         tangy, and almost creamy. Buffalo milk is not for drinking and
                         is used exclusively for making mozzarella. Indeed, it is so nu-
                         tritious and so rich in fat and cassein that it would be indi-
gestible over the breakfast table, whereas it is the best for the cheese industry. This
fabulous cheese is produced in Seven provinces in Central-South Italy: Caserta and
Salerno provinces, and part of Benevento, Naples, Frosinone, Latina and Rome.

 Gorgonzola Cheese
