There are many varieties of dairy cows inhabiting each region, and the difference in milk yield and ingredients between breeds gives each cow’s cheese its individuality. In order to have a cheese approved as a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese, it must be made with a specific breed of cow.
Cheeses are classified into soft, semi-hard, and hard cheeses depending on their water content. The hard type of cheese is drained of all its water content, making it a great candidate for long term maturing. The longer it is matured, the richer it becomes in flavor. Typically hard cheeses come in larger form, and usually they are made in mountainous areas.
Thanks to its heavy rainfall and blessed greenery and the plains of the Po river basin, Emilia-Romagna has long been a thriving dairy farm. Grana Padano and Parmigiano, which are the largest producers of Italian DOP cheese are representative of this region. Emilia-Romagna alone accounts for the majority of Italy’s total cheese production.
