Fanticini Authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano

The Real Deal for Kosher Cheese Lovers

 

Of the 650 producers of authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano, only one is certified as Kosher. It is made by Pietro Fanticini, a third-generation cheesemaker located in Reggio Emilio, the heart of Parmigiano-Reggiano territory. Since 1907, the Fanticini family has produced Parmigiano-Reggiano and other cheeses.

Kosher production began in 1996 and, after the required two-year aging period, the first wheels of kosher Parmigiano-Reggiano were cut, wrapped, and shipped in 1998.

The cheese is light straw in color, with a classic crumbly texture. The flavor is full and fruity with a salty twist. It can be enjoyed in a variety of ways:

  • With aperitifs
  • In an antipasto
  • Grated or shaved on pastas, salads or risottos
  • In Alfredo sauce or a pesto
  • On a cheese plate, with a hearty red wine (the classic pairing is a Lambrusco)
  • Served in chunks with a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar (this is a popular dessert among connoisseurs—you can serve the cheese on a plate, or in a dessert dish)
  • As a snack with dipping sauces (pesto, tapenade, parsley sauce, tomato sauce, fruit chutney)

Classic accompaniments include pears, apples, peaches, figs, grapes, walnuts, and kiwi fruit.

Read about the history of Parmigiano-Reggiano—documents show that it was being produced by by 1200 or 1300 A.D.—and the history of cheese in general.
