Pork Piccata with Ruggeri 36-mth Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese

cheesy pork piccata with emborg mushroom sauce recipe
Known as the King of Cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano is often shaved or grated over food, and I love the gritty texture and the strong umami flavour of the gourmet cheese.

You may wonder if there is a difference between Parmigiano Reggiano and Parmesan Cheese. Do you know that Parmigiano Reggiano is actually the real deal, and it can only come from the Parma region in northern Italy? Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is a product with the Protected Designation of Origin ( PDO ), so Parmesan is kinda like an imitation. According to the trademark laws in Italy, the cheese cannot be called Parmigiano Reggiano unless it's made in Italy according to a specific recipe.

A lovely friend, who was back from Italy recently bought me this delectable 36-mth Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese from Ruggeri Antica Pizzicheria. Parmigiano Reggiano is used to generate deep essence in dishes such as soup, pasta and risotto. The older the age, the more intense the flavour, which also means you will get different results with a 24, 36 or a 48-month cheese. A 24-mth-old Parmigiano Reggiano is used in soup and pasta courses, whereas an older cheese like the 36-mth-old can enhance the flavour in main courses such as this Pork Piccata.

Instead of using a standard sauce to finish my dish, using a Mushroom Cream Sauce allows me to add flavour and texture without making the dish too heavy.
