Cheese of the Week: Argentine Reggianito

By May 14, 2010

Follow me on:

The first time someone asked me for parmesan cheese from Argentina, I have to admit that I didn't know what they were talking about. Although Argentine Reggianito still hasn't surpassed Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano in popularity, it has become more well known. Mostly, as a less-expensive alternative to Parmigiano-Reggiano, however, they really are two entirely different types of cheese.

Argentine Reggianito is an aged cheese, but the texture is smooth and slightly rubbery. The flavor is sharply fruity; personally, it reminds me more of Provoline Picante than Parmigiano Reggiano. If you're looking for a less-expensive cheese to grate over pasta, however,  Argentine Reggianito is definitely worth a try.

The flavor is sharp and fruity
