Description: Very similar in taste and texture to Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano is a DOP status cheese, often thought to be one of the worlds' first cheeses, with a colorful 900 year history. Grana Padano is made with semi-skim milk, with pronounced crystalization throughout the cheese and a very hard, crumbly texture.
