Prima Donna

Over 10% Off with Kilo Purchases

Quick Overview:

Firm and slightly oily, a bit of salt in the finish. The only cheese that approaches Parmigiano Reggiano in sales.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Holland
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Traditional calf rennet

The Flavor Experience

The inspiration for Prima Donna was to create a hybrid of Parmigiano Reggiano and Gouda, and they seem to have found a pretty good balance between the two.

The Story

This is essentially Gouda made with starter cultures that are typically used in northern Italy.  These cultures result in a sweeter cheese than you would typically find in Holland.

Usage Tips

Pair with most beers or red wines.  We love it with Black Lava Cashews or Cinnful Cocoa Pecans.

It generally takes one business day to receive and process your order. Shipping speed selected at checkout applies to the time in transit only. The delivery clock starts once the package is picked up by our carriers, not once you submit your order, and there are times when our fulfillment team may hold certain orders to process and ship after the weekend in order to ensure product viability.

Straight From the Monger's Mouth
"The fact that this cheese rivals Parmigiano Reggiano in sales, in an Italian cheese shop, is about all you have to say to speak to its popularity. It has been one of our most popular cheeses since we introduced it a decade ago." – Hunter F.,

    I ordered Prima Donna but my daughter was sent L'amuse Gouda. As it turns out she was very happy with the L'Amuse so it was a good mistake.

    This cheese is the best, it is smooth with a nutty bite. I order this regularly through DiBruno as I cannot get it in my market except for small pieces. I use it in a variety of dishes in addition to eating it with a nice glass of wine. I hope you bring back the kilo size of this cheese.

    Whenever my wife and I visit our good friends in Conshohocken, we always stop by Di Bruno Brothers on our way to the airport to come home. And Prima Donna is ALWAYS on the plane with us. It is, in a word, remarkable!
