Trader Joe’s – Parmesan Cheese – Food Review


tj, trader joe, parmesan cheese, nutrition, review, calories, priceDecember 20, 2017

Make no mistake about it, this is a hard cheese.  Grating it can be a grating experience.

For me, this is a cheese better eaten by itself than used in recipes.  As noted above, the cheese is hard and will give both your knife and jaw a workout.  The cheese has a nice, but mild, parmesan flavor to it.  A glass of wine is a nice accompaniment.

Surprisingly, as a grated cheese, I actually prefer the pre-grated sprinkle on stuff.  Not only is the pre-grated cheese easier to use, but it has more flavor pop than this cheese.  The cheese was used as a topping to flavor pastas and salads for this review.

Now, if you’re trying to impress your significant other with a home cooked meal as Billy Joel’s Italian Restaurant plays in the background, grating this at the table is the way to go.  And as above, an extra bottle of red is a nice accompaniment.

    Hi Steveo, I have found a good parmesan cheese here in Australia that does not contain animal rennet – but not as hard as this one as its quite crumbly when grated or cut.
