Did you know that Grana Padano cheese was invented by Benedictine monks who wanted to find a way to preserve surplus milk? Dating back to 1100 AD its quality reputation quickly spread and it was served at both Renaissance banquets held by princes and dukes as well as being a main source of nourishment for people in rural areas.
Proscuitto di San Daniele is cured in San Daniele del Fruili where the sea breeze off the Adriatic meets the winds from the Alps, the morainic hills curb humidity and the Tagliamento river regulates the temperature. This results in the perfect microclimate to preserve the thigh meat of selected Italian pigs.
Using only sea salt and traditional techniques dating back for centuries, the result gives us a prosciutto
that is delicate to the taste and so soft to the palate that it melts in the mouth. Its aroma grows more persistent as maturing progresses.
Both Grana Padano cheese and Prosciutto di San Daniele have been recognised by the European Union as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) products since 1996, and they have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win one of their taster gift boxes worth approximately £10. Simply fill out the Rafflecopter entry form below to enter!
