Description
 
Grana Padano is a hard and slow ripened cheese from the north of Italy. The name comes from the Italian word grana ("grain"), which refers to the distinctively grainy texture of the cheese, and the adjective Padano, which refers to the valley Pianura Padana.
Grana Padano is one of the world's first hard cheeses, created about 900 years ago by monks near Milan, who used ripened cheese as a way of preserving milk.
Like Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano is a semi-fat hard cheese which is cooked and ripened slowly for at least nine months. It is younger and milder than Parmigiano reggiano, but can be used much in the same ways. If it passes quality tests, it is fire-branded with the Grana Padano trademark.
