  1. Very good cheese ! It is a product of Germany and has a Parmigiano-Reggiano quality to it. A real rich European cheese that is aged, dry, crystallized, crumbly and very rich ! It can be grated for pasta dishes, crumbled over salads, enjoyed sliced thin and flaked by itself and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It is not easy to find in the U.S. I found it in a discount .99 cent store for only $ 1.99 for a 7 oz. (200 g.) package….a real bargain ! A comparable piece of the popular imported Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano would be $ 12.99 (or higher !)Americans tend to avoid it, because it looks dry and hard. However, that is what it is supposed to be. A crumbly and rich, super-sharp and savory old-world cheese. It is truly excellent !
