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

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