“Pair with Parrano®” this Spring Season #AtHomeTogether

Parrano® cheese invites you to get “InsPaired” and re-imagine your favorite spring recipes to “Pair With Parrano”.  With the nation doing more entertaining at home, the simple pleasure of enjoying family and friends with delicious food is more important than ever before.  Parrano wants to help make your Spring into Summer celebrations and other at-home festivities more enjoyable by encouraging you to craft your next favorite entertaining pairing using Parrano cheese!


Parrano® Originale is a one-of-a-kind cheese that is aged for five months and blends the smooth, creamy texture of a Gouda with the nutty flavor of a parmesan.  It is incredibly versatile and complex but approachable flavor is sure to elevate your springtime recipes. The unique blend of flavors makes for a must-have cheese when entertaining and can be served in a variety of ways and is great from many at-home entertaining occasions such as Easter, Mother’s Day, or a dinner with friends—creativity is the only limit. To get your creative juices flowing, Parrano has released two new #PairWithParrano recipes for Easter: prosciutto cups and a gluten-free gobbler melt.


Debbie Seife, Marketing Director North America, of FrieslandCampina, says, “Parrano is the perfect cheese to pair with just about anything, any time, and for most Spring celebrations and all year round.” She adds, “The combination of Gouda and Parmesan offer exceptional flavor unmatched by other cheeses.”
