Hard Cheese

Between a rock and a hard cheese? If you’re the type that like your cheddar in chunks and your Grana super ready to grate, you’ve come to the right place! Here you’ll find some beloved favorites like salty, crumbly Parmigiano Reggiano from Italy, aged Cheddars studded with crystals and oily Manchegos that are just perfect to pair with soft membrillo. Discover the best cheeses for grating like Grana Padana and Pecorino Toscano, plus great sheep’s milk and hard goat cheeses. What makes a cheese hard? It’s pretty much a combination pressing the moisture out and the aging process, all of which create the dry, crumbly texture we know and love. Discover our selection below!
