    Just a small note for vegetarians. Make sure to check your Parmesan for *rennet*.
    DOP Parmigiano Reggiano is the most likely to contain animal rennet which comes from scraping a calf stomach. Hence it’s basically not vegetarian.
    I’d look for microbial rennet instead, mostly found in “cheaper” kinds of cheese, mozzarella included.
