Any food lover can swear by cheese and when one gets to experience the “Parmigiano Reggiano”, a legendary cheese that originates from the Parma region of Italy it’s pure ecstasy. Commonly known as the Parmesan, it is a relatively hard and granular variety of cheese. Parmigiano is the Italian adjective for Parma and Reggiano that for Reggio Emilia.
Sorrento, the Italian eatery at Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel New Delhi has recently showcased a menu specially crafted with 12, 24 and 36 months aged Parmesan cheese. Maestro chefs Luigi Ferraro and Neeraj Tyagi paired some of the most delicious dishes with a selection of Italian wines. Here is our pictorial journey.
While one tastes the three varieties of cheese in their raw form, the difference is quite evident. The 36-month-old cheese is more pungent and strong in flavour, the 12-month-aged cheese is subtle and soft on palate.
The all-time favourite Bruchetta.
This three tomatoes salad is a delight for healthy eaters.
The silken Ravioli, filled with 24-month-aged parmesan cream brulee, was perfectly complimented by Masi’Levarie’ Soave Classico 2013.
Enjoyed a delicious sfoglia of vegetables with 12-month aged Parmesan cheese with a selection of Italian wines at Sorrento. Italian maestro Luigi Ferraro brings with him more than two decades of hospitality experience from across the globe.
This was certainly the best cheesecake I have had in a long time and the amazing part is that the chef didn’t use cream cheese. The 12-month-aged cheese was used to make it that gave a fluffy and light texture.
