Obviously, there's nothing a good as the real thing, which hasn't been available in a kosher version for some time. I was wondering people use as a substitute.
I don't know anything about what is and isn't kosher, but gruyere tastes fairly similar to me.
Where can you find gruyere?
The Cheese Guy's Parm is ok. It's not as good as the old Italian real deal, but it's passable and better than Miller's.
We've been using grana padano, both brands which are readily available here in London and it's a fine substitute.
As DeisCane noted you should be able to find a certified grana padano.
For vegan guests we use miso. The taste is completely different, but the umami is there.
Ground almonds with nutritional yeast is a good vegan sub.
Seconding the nutritional yeast. I know the name sound unappetizing, but that stuff is great. If you're making food for someone who can't have almonds or want to cut out a step, it is still great on its own.
To clarify - I'm not looking for vegan alternatives to cheese, I'm just curious if there are any other cheeses that come anywhere close to real Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Yeah, I got ya, CWY. I was just replying to bcc. Go with the grana padano.
