DOP : Denominazione di Origine Protetta
The Parmigiano Reggiano DOP
The Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan cheese) is made according to a very strict production method. It can only be manufactured in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Bologna. Parmigiano Reggiano obtained the DOP label in 1996, but traces of its manufacture can be found in 13th century monasteries. The cows are treated in the morning and in the evening. The evening milk spends the night in cauldrons to separate the cream from the milk. The next morning, it is mixed with the one of the morning, before being heated and brewed until obtaining the good consistency.

Olive oil from Liguria
