Calling all cheese lovers! Enter my giveaway this week to win a gift set featuring all things Grana Padano, one of my favorite cheeses for cooking and nibbling. The set includes:

  • Chunk of Grana Padano (in a white box)
  • Saveur/Grana Padano Cookbook
  • Grana Padano Grater
  • Grana Padano-branded Cheese Pick
  • Grana Padano-branded Wooden Cheese Board

Grana Padano is a hard cheese with an intensely sweet, nutty flavor and granular texture. It was first created by Cistercian monks approximately 1,000 years ago as way for the dairy farmers of northern Italy’s Po Valley to preserve excess milk from their herds. Today it is one of the most popular cheeses in Italy, and Italy’s best selling cheese worldwide. “Grana” comes from Latin for grain and “Padano” indicates it is “of the Po River.” To learn more about Grana Padano, visit the website or follow on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

For a chance to win the gift set, simply review any recipe on the site between now and midnight on December 8th. You may review up to three recipes for three separate entries. Please leave constructive reviews that will help other cooks. For example: Was the dish perfect as is or would you alter the recipe next time? Did you make any substitutions? What other dishes did you serve it with? Click here to visit the recipe index to start reviewing!
