What to Expect
Historical evidence shows that already in 1200-1300, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese had reached its perfect taste and consistency that has remained unchanged to the present. This was - and still is - possible by carefully passing on the tradition with exactly the same instructions, tips, secrets, and gestures throughout the different generations of the Parmesan masters.
Therefore, the most recent history of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is essentially the history of how 350 small dairy artisans of the Parma region obtained, by way of law, the recognition of their key role in preserving the processing methods and the high quality level of the product.
