When To Use Grocery Parm Over Parmigiano

Chef Notes Icon

You might have found it confusing seeing your local grocery sell “Parm” in bottles while the deli sells it in blocks. We usually just call the grocery version Parmesan and the deli version Parmigiano.

Hailing from Italy, parmigiano translates to “Parmesan” in English. But despite the similar names, the two parms don’t behave the same way.

  • ✅ Grocery Parm costs 4x less than Parmigiano.
  • ✅ Grocery Parm lasts longer than Parmigiano.
  • ✅ Grocery Parm is easier to find.
