For cheese lovers…visiting a cheese factory in Modena – Italy

According to the Food Encyclopedia “Parmigiano-Reggiano, often called Parmesan cheese, is a hard dry cheese made from skimmed or partially skimmed cow’s milk. It has a hard pale-golden rind and a straw- colored interior with a rich, sharp flavor.”

I do LOVE it! 🙂

This Summer, we had the opportunity to visit
 4 Madonne Caseificio dell’Emilia in Italy.

We could see all the different phases of Parmigiano Reggiano processing first-hand: 

from the milk delivery to the finished wheels, following all the production phases, 
the warehouse, the cutting room, the factory shop and of course, 
we also tasted the delicious Parmigiano Reggiano!

 You can read more about all the phases of Parmigiano Reggiano processing on their website.

  1. Well, that looks like fun! What an impressive cheese factory. I've never been in one but I'll bet the smell is overpowering. I'm not sure I'd like these cheeses, either, but I'd try them. I'm kinda stuck on Cheddar cheese. 🙂
