History for Parmesan Orange Roughy
Parmesan is Italian cheese. Parmigiano-Reggiano is a firm, sharp cow’s milk cheese that is typically grated.
The original Parmigiano-Reggiano is made in a narrowly defined zone of Italy that encompasses the cities of Parma, Modena, and Mantua, as well as a small portion of Bologna.
Only from April to November is Parmesan manufactured, and it must be aged for at least two years.
It has a deep, savory flavor at this age and is eaten as a snack or after meals, as well as used in cooking.
