parmesan

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Last night my boyfriend and me ordered pizza and parmesan and it got me thinking...does anyone on here know what a parmesan is? Not the cheese, the fantastically calorific delicacy. :yum:

I'm pretty sure that it's just a North East thing so I was wondering how far a field the knowledge of 'parmos' had managed to get.


yes I am very bored...humor me

    Parmesan is Italian.

    EDIT: In actual fact I think Parmesan is English for Parmigiano.

    it's not the same...the one's that you can get in resteraunts, parmigano (sp?) are different.

    it's ok...i didn't think that the north east had invented italian food :p

    what did it have in it?
    I googled it, and it came up with loads of different dishes.
    Eggplant parmesan, fish parmesan, asparagus parmesan, oysters parmesan.

    Was it a pasta dish, a bread dish, a vegetable dish, a potato dish, a souffle, a flan?
    its a bit hard to tell just from calling it a parmesan.
