Parrano cheese is produced in and has the texture of a Dutch Gouda but a similar flavor profile of a good Parmigiano-Reggiano. Parrano is made with pasteurized cow's milk. You can use the cheese in cooking or baking, in pasta sauces, for sandwiches and makes a good add to your cheese board. Parrano is made with vegetarian rennet.
The producer states Parrano should never be frozen (although it's fine if used in a dish that is later frozen) because the texture does not hold up.
