Elements of sensory analysis
Learn to recognize all the inimitable characteristics of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
In the system of sensory analysis, all the senses are involved and stimulated when the cheese is tasted.
Sight recognizes the color (of the rind and paste).
Touch feels the texture (its oiliness, how the cheese responds to pressure or crumbling).
Smell enjoys the aromas, and Taste savors the flavors.
Even Hearing is involved, in the sound of the crystals being crushed when chewing the cheese.
