At Eataly, we showcase this passion by featuring both traditional varieties from Italy and inspired selections from the American school. With all salumi and formaggi, our friendly and knowledgeable cheesemongers will tell you the story of the animals that produced it, the people who crafted it, and the land that gave it life.

PROSCIUTTO DI PARMA DOP

The dry air from the Appennini Mountains makes Parma in the region of Emilia Romagna the perfect place for aging prosciutto. Only a certain breed of northern Italian pigs is used and the aging process is strictly regulated. Choice pig thighs are aged for a minimum of 12 months and up to 36 months to achieve a delicate texture and sweet flavor. Perfect paired with Parmigiano Reggiano DOP!

PROSCIUTTO DI SAN DANIELE DOP

The combination of intoxicating air from the mountains and from the Adriatic sea makes San Daniele in the northeastern region of Friuli the perfect place to age prosciutto. A pork thigh can only be deemed Prosciutto di San Daniele if 3 conditions are met: 1) The pig must be raised in one of the 10 regions of the central-north of Italy, 2) It must be raised using specific, age-old traditions, and 3) The process and aging must take place in San Daniele, Friuli.

PARMIGIANO REGGIANO DOP

Where you come from matters. The relationship between Parmigiano Reggiano and its area of origin is inescapable. It only comes from Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, to the left of the Reno River, and Mantua to the right of the Po River. 4,000 farms produce milk of exceptional quality from cows fed a healthy, all-natural diet of local grass. Each wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano requires 160 gallons of this milk, which is transformed into cheese by 400 cheese makers. Matured a minimum of 12 months before testing and certification, most wheels are aged 24 months or more.

GRANA PADANO DOP

The Grana Padano Consortium promotes the understanding and appreciation of Grana Padano DOP, one of the most popular and best-selling cheeses in the world. With a history that dates back to 12th century Cistercian monks in the region of Veneto, the extraordinary people who produce, age and sell Grana Padano DOP are beyond passionate about the cheese’s origin and taste. In order to be certified DOP, Grana must be produced along the Po River Valley in the northern regions of Piemonte, Lombardia, Veneto and Emilia Romagna. There are 6,193 farms in the Po Valley that exclusively produce Grana Padano DOP using the highest quality Italian milk from Italian cows. The cows are raised following rigorous guidelines and are milked no more than twice a day. Grana Padano DOP must be aged for at least 9 months and can be aged for up to 2 years.

The historic dairy farm, with roots reaching back more than 1,000 years, continues to create the finest cheeses using local ingredients, from finocchino (wild fennel) to tartufino (fresh truffles).

CASEIFICIO DELL'ALTA LANGA

Located in Bosia, between Cortemila and Alba in the region of Piemonte, Caseificio dell'Alta Langa gets its name from the rich gastronomic territory of Alta Langa that surrounds it. The traditions and ingredients of the region are reflected in every one of their cheeses.
