So, what is grana padano?

Grana Padano is a hard, slow-ripened cheese that originated in the Po River Valley of northern Italy. It is made from unpasteurized cow's milk and has a pale yellow color with a grainy texture. The flavor is nutty, salty, and slightly sweet, with hints of fruit and grass. Grana Padano's unique taste comes from its aging process, which can last up to two years. This cheese pairs well with bold red wines, cured meats, and salads. Its versatility makes it a popular ingredient in many Italian dishes, including risotto, pasta, and pizza.
