Fox Hill Parmesan is a hard, crisp and granular textured cheese from Fox Hill Cheese House, a fromagerie producing dairy products from its own herd of Holstein and Jersey cows. It has a dark hard and dry yellow crust with a straw interior that has a little more moisture than the regular parmesan. Its rich nutty, very salty taste enhances the flavour of Italian pasta dishes and salads. Fox Hill Parmesan is delicious when paired with wedges melon and pears, olives and smoked ham or white wine.
