I am just joking (sort of). I have no problem with people eating and liking the stuff from the can. More power to you. There are plenty of things I eat that are junk. Everyone's palate is different and if you can enjoy a lower quality product then there is nothing wrong with that IMO.
Exactly.
I realize there's a difference, just like there's a difference between Kobi beef and the stuff you get at the local butcher, or on a smaller scale a steak and a hamburger patty, but for some reason bring up Parmesan cheese and it turns into a thread with people not understanding how anyone could eat or even consider using the stuff in the green can. I'd bet a hundred bucks in the blink of an eye that 50% of the people on this board served a dish containing Kraft parm or fresh parm probably wouldn't even care. It's called Discuss Cooking, not Discuss Finer Cooking. IMO people should realize that and express their dislike for certain foods a little more tactfully. I don't like people calling the food I (or anyone else) eats tasteless crap, even if it is It just ain't polite.

I just got the mail and Parm regg is on sale this week for $12.99/lb. That's $7 off according to the ad. That's 3x as much as what I paid those steaks a while back I eat steak every week. I eat parmesan cheese 3x/year. If I ate it more regularly I might be able to justify keeping fresh around. Homie's palate don't roll that way.
Hey Fred! I eat the crap in a can as well. As a matter of fact, I just topped my dinner with it, and it aint so bad. Of course, I ain't got no kulture anyway.

Okay this is not the www.cookingforandbysnobs.com forum. Oh My link didn't work, darn!
I can get it for 2 cans for $5, making it $5 a lb. If I could get parmesan in a chunk for that price I'd certainly buy it.

Okay no religion, politics or parmesan.

Thanks, Fred. My wife and I are both self-employed. No, we don't own factories with 500 employees and a corporate jet, nor do we own a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton with 5-star chefs at our disposal, and we certainly are not gourmet chefs (I hope I don't get banned for admitting my deficiencies). I am a Handyman (fix sinks, toilets, electrical work and carpentry) and my wife is a working owner of a residential cleaning business. We live within a budget and eat well (can't remember the last time we ended up in the Emergency Room because of eating "normal" foods), although not top shelf by any stretch. I shop for value priced fresh ingredients whenever possible, but have somehow made it on this planet for 58 years without $20/pound cheeses on my food. I agree that it's not polite to chastise someone because they cannot or choose to not purchase the high priced spread.

Gotta run. Going to pick up some peasant blood sausage and sauerkraut while clinging to my guns and religion.

you're right...and I shouldn't have said the green stuff is yucky... sorry about that. I stuck my foot in my mouth big time.

I live in Canada but I do wish everyone across the border a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday.

Fresh is always better. The can will work..but won't have the taste or texture.

Not that there's anything wrong with that
