Parmesan: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Parmesan can be enjoyed as a table cheese and served with meals; it also makes a great accompaniment to such fruits as sliced pears, tart apples, fresh figs, and ripe melon.

When grated, Parmesan is the ultimate addition to pastas, tomato sauces, soups, and warm, crusty French and Italian breads. It’s wonderful with chicken and adds depth of flavor to pizza, mashed potatoes, and squash, and piquancy to salads; enjoy it served with hearty red wines or cappuccino. For the best flavor, cooks and connoisseurs are encouraged to grate fresh, whole Parmesan just before serving.
