Parmigiano!

50 New and Classic Recipes with Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese

In the last five years, Americans have enjoyed more authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese than ever before, proof that our taste buds have come to demand the real thing - a delicious cheese steeped in tradition and passion. At last, here's a cookbook that celebrates the wonderful flavor and pastoral roots of this beloved Italian cheese.

In Parmigiano!, seasoned cookbook author and cooking teacher Pamela Sheldon Johns takes you to the heartland of Italy, Emilia-Romagna, the picturesque region "bounded by rivers and mountains," where Parmigiano-Reggiano has been made for centuries. She traces the history of the cheese and describes the traditional method - at once an art and a science - by which it is made. Parmigiano-Reggiano finds its way into fifty simple and enticing appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, entrees, breads, and even desserts, enhancing old favorites, such as Eggplant Parmigiano, as well as updated dishes, such as Radicchio Caesar Salad, Wild Mushroom Lasagne, and Caramelized Pears with Parmigiano-Reggiano Wedges.

With evocative photographs that bring to life the Italian countryside and the age-old cheesemaking process, Parmigiano! presents a tantalizing collection of recipes in the ultimate tribute to Italy's signature cheese.
