* Only grate or slice the cheese as you use it. Re-wrap remaining cheese tightly with wax paper, and return it to the zip-close bag.
* If your piece begins to dry out, wrap it in slightly damp cheesecloth or paper towel, and then wrap it in plastic wrap or put it back in its zip-close bag.
* Store the cheese in the warmest part of the refrigerator.
As soon as it is cut, Parmigiano-Reggiano begins to lose some of its flavor. (That's why you should always grate it yourself, rather than buying pre-grated.) Unlike some retailers who cut entire wheels up at once and put them on display for weeks at a time, we cut the cheese the day before it is shipped to you!
Note About Gift Orders:
During the holiday season, PDF Cheese Certificates as emailed to purchaser within 24-48 hours of ordering. The certificate indicates to whom the Parmigiano-Reggiano is being sent, as well as who the gift is from. If there is no separate ship-to name and address, the "to" section of the certificate will be left blank, so that you can print it and fill it out however you wish. If you need us to mail a physical certificate to the gift recipient, please let us know. In all cases, the more information we have about what you would like to see on the certificate, and where you want the certificate to be sent, the better.
