Parrano cheese

From Cookipedia


Parrano cheese

Parrano is a pasteurised cows' milk cheese with a mild and nutty taste, combining salty and sweet flavours. It has a semi-firm texture and a smooth, golden interior. It is produced in 10 kg wheels and is matured for 5 months.

Combining the flavour of aged Parmesan with a pliant texture, Parrano is marketed as an Italian-style cheese. Taglines have included "The Dutch cheese that thinks it’s Italian" and "Sort of Italian." However, Parrano is technically Gouda although its flavour is more pronounced than that of traditional Gouda.

Uniekaas is the exclusive producer of Parrano, a trademarked brand.
