Bacon Wrapped Parmesan Mushrooms

Forget Pre-grated Parmesan

Your dish is only as great as the quality of the ingredients. Forget that green can of grated parmesan cheese and buy a block of parmesan. Grate it yourself and experience what parm was meant to be. Parmigiano is named after the provinces of Parma where it originated. Many varieties exist, but in order to be called Parmigiano cheese it has to be produced from cows grazing on fresh grass and hay. It's a hard cheese with a nutty, fruity, and sometimes sharp flavor profile.
