Grating Cheeses

Romano/Pecorino- a cylinder shaped cheese made from whole sheep's milk, goat's milk or cow's milk. It has a very sharp flavor with a very hard, dry and crumbly texture.
Parmesan/Parmigiano Reggiano- a light yellow cylinder shaped cheese made from part-skim cow's milk. It has a sharp, nutty flavor and a very hard, dry and crumbly texture.
Asiago- a light yellow, cylinder or flat block shaped cheese made from whole or part-skim cow's milk. It has a mild to sharp flavor and a semi-soft to hard texture, depending on the age.
