Cravero Parmigiano-Reggiano

Cravero Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese portrait by Mike Geno
*Part of the "KINGS OF CHEESES" series*
For five generations, the Cravero family has been hand-selecting young wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano from the finest farms of Emilia-Romagna and transporting them to their maturation caves in Bra, a mountain village in central Piedmont. So this name attached represents the finest parmesan curated from the best wheels and therefore is safe to consider a King of Cheeses.

This large portrait was a challenge considering how complicated the color and texture shifts of the subject can confuse the eye.
