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.

shipped with care

Your order is guaranteed to be handled with care and shipped with an eye toward ensuring the products arrive as fresh as possible. All of our perishables are packed in insulated, heat-resistant packaging with safe, re-usable ice packs. If you should also order dry goods, we neatly pack them around the other materials, enclosed in a sturdy, corrugated container.

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. Please note processing times may be extended during the holiday season.

    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!

  3. Great Cheese!

    Even though the cheese arrived slightly melted, it firmed up ok in the fridge (with some pockets of oil). I would totally buy this again. Super tasty.
