Grana Padano

Grana Padano cheese has been a part of Italy's proud gastronomic heritage for nearly 1000 years. A staple in Italian cuisine, it has become the world's best-selling PDO cheese. It has a fine grainy structure and a mellow, tasty, yet never overpowering, flavor, and can be found aged between 9 months to over 24 months. Grana Padano possesses unique nutritional features and is naturally lactose free due to its production characteristics and the long ageing process.

    This recipe sounds delicious, but it would be most helpful if you would include the amount of gelatin powder that equaled the gelatin sheets you recommended- not all of of have access to the sheets and the powder is readily available.
