We often use the word Parmesan for a true Italian Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, but there is a huge difference between the two. These shavings are from a 18 months old Parmigiano Reggiano that is produced in the region of Emilia Romagna in Italy.
A cheese labeled as Parmesan in the U.S. that is not genuine Parmigiano-Reggiano, but can still be a tasty cheese. There are many small and large cheesemakers that making a high-quality Parmesan that is obviously inspired by the real Parmigiano-Reggiano.
