" Grana" is the name of the type of cheese: effectively, the right name of Parmigiano (= of Parma, town very close to Reggio) is Grana.
Actually, Grana Padano is a 20-30% (till 50%) cheaper than Parmigiano, a little sweeter, just a bit less tasting than this. For us this is not a light question: Many people are divided into the difference between them, and both have their estimators. Personally, even if Lodigiano is near me, I must admit that I prefer Reggiano, both in fresh version, to eat pure, than in seasoned version, to grate over foods.
Do you think we are wasting our time in silly questions? May be: but they are interesting, funny and TASTING questions, isn't it?
Thanks RDG,
I prefer the Reggiano, but intend to use the other til it's used up. I grated some into a rice torta I made and while it didn't quite have the zing of one with Reggiano, it was very good. Thanks for all your help. I so enjoy reading your posts and recipes. You've given us many great ideas.

Roquefort is a sheeps milk cheese, Morbier is cows milk. Both would be outstanding on a fine filet or in a frisee salad with lardon!
