Ragusano is an iconic Sicilian cheese made only with Summer milk. It is made according to traditional methods and pressed to form a large ‘brick’ shape, each cheese weighing about 16 kg. It’s made in the same way as caciocavallo and so tastes similar – the flavour is sharp and piccante and there is a rich aroma of herbs, fresh pastures and creamy butter. A great choice if you like strong flavoured cheese with a pronounced bite.

The King of Cheeses – a great Parmigiano Reggiano like this is a kitchen staple. Our reggiano from Cantarelli is sweet and savoury with a well-balanced bite. It also has an amazing texture – crumbly and flaky, but still incredibly moist – the result of aging in the family’s naturally ventilated cheese caves, used since the 1800’s for maturing Parmigiano Reggiano. Aged for 36 months and certified organic don’t let a single gram go to waste, grate on pasta or use the rind to flavour soups and stocks. Each wedge comes freshly sliced off the block wrapped in wax paper and sealed to protect the cheese from oxidisation.
