PARMESAN, THE GRATE WAR 52’

The second most counterfeited food product in the world

Is Parmesan a luxury product or a mass-market food? In any case, it is a product whose 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.
