Restraunt Depot Parmesans, where to start?
« on: July 14, 2019, 12:15:45 PM »
Went to Restraunt Depot yesterday and could of stayed all day gawking. I saw they had a big selection and range of Parmesan, from domestic to higher end imported Grana padana and Parmigiano Reggiano

My question is, are the import cheeses worth it? How do they compare with the entry level parms like stella and belgioioso?

I only use Parmigiano-Reggiano on pizza and feel that it's well worth the higher cost. For snacking I like Sartori Sarvecchio Parmesan.

Appreciate it, I'll go ahead and get the higher end stuff.
How do you apply Parmigiano Reggiano? On the sauce, on top of mozzarella, in the sauce or do you do a post bake sprinkle?

For NP on top of the sauce. Many add it to the sauce for NY. I sprinkle on top of mozz for other styles. Post bake works too.

^^^  Pamigiano Reggiano at 24-36 months is the king. I would choose a good grana padano in place of a lesser parm.

What amounts of parm does RD sell? Is it already pre-cut?

My local RD carries everything from vac packed 1Lb wedges precut to entire wheels of various origin (domestic or imported). Wedges are all pre-cut. Depending on the brand, whole wheels may weigh anything from around 12 Lbs to upward of 75 Lbs. They also carry 1, 2 and 5 Lb bags of grated and shredded parm.

I've been using a wedge of Parmesan Reggianito recently, pretty good stuff for the price.
How much does a pound of the real deal Reggiano go for at RD?

Grana Padano for me.
