Synopsis

Is Parmesan cheese a luxury product or a mass market food? In any case, it is a product which production has been jealously guarded for centuries in the Po Valley in Italy. Thefts of whole wheels have multiplied there, and a parmesan cheese bank has even been created in an ultra-secure place.

While certain production methods are under debate, the United States, a country with little regard for Protected Designation of Origin and traditions, offers a US version of the famous Italian cheese.

The second most counterfeited food product in the world, Parmesan has flooded restaurant tables and supermarkets.
