It's addictive! Would you mind sharing the recipe? I've never made my own.

Another one of my new finds is Sarvecchio Parmesan. I've always used Parmigiano Reggiano exclusively - all the domestic parmesans I've tried have been sub par. This one, however, is surprisingly fantastic. It's nice and aged and pungent!

Lemon Basil? Never heard of putting basil in Indian Green chutney, I'll try that for pesto though

i can't wait to find and try this parmesan cheese. i too found an exceptional domestic product in bridgford's italian salami. it comes out of chicago, has a great authentic flavor and is very reasonably priced. coming across little food treasures such as this makes me so happy....

I haven't had salami in so long - it sounds great.

I was soooo surprised when I tried the Sarvecchio - it's outstanding. My local health food store had put out some samples a few weeks ago. If I hadn't gone in the exact day and time they had the samples out, I never would have known about this cheese. Normally, I shun all domestic parmesans, so I'm really glad I gave this one a try. Let me know what you think!
