Parmesan is a translation of the Italian words, Parmigiano-Reggiano. The two terms refer to the same cheese. Often referred to as the “King of Cheeses”, Parmesan is an Italian hard, granular cheese produced from cows’ milk, which is then Aged for at least 12 months.

When making Spanish Aragonesa Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
Quality Food Containers
Leftovers need to go somewhere, and I don’t enjoy using aluminium foil or plastic wrap all the time. A couple of good air tight containers should be in every home.
Sometimes called a paddle or shovel, a pizza peel is a vital tool for those who make pizza regularly.
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
Black pudding is a kind of sausage, except that unlike normal sausages, you make it with blood. To make a black pudding, you cook blood mixed with a filler (oatmeal) until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled.
Black pudding appeared in 800 BC, when it was mentioned in Homer’s classic ‘The Odyssey’. Black pudding is a good source of protein, and is essentially carb-free. It is rich in iron and zinc.
These are all true, believe me!
Pizza in latin
The first recorded use of the word ‘pizza’ has been found in a 997 AD Latin text from Gaeta, Italy.
Print that pizza
Using NASA funding, a group of scientists developed a 3D pizza printer in 2013. It can cook a pizza in under 70 seconds, complete with the sprayed flavor, aroma and micronutrients.
Record for most pizzas sliced
The most pizzas sliced in three minutes was achieved by Rory Coughlan-Allen (UK) from Wales, UK, sliced 17 pizzas in three minutes on 1 March 2022.
