San Carlo, Manchester’s iconic Italian restaurant, has teamed up with Grana Padano, one of Italy’s most celebrated cheese producers to create a unique menu, perfect for cheese lovers and foodies alike.

Perfect for chilly Autumn days, the warming, decadent menu will be available at the King Street West restaurant and all San Carlo venues nationwide, from the end of October until the end of November.

Dishes include Winter risotto ai Funghi Porcini – a fabulous porcini mushroom risotto for two, served at the table in a wheel of Grana Padano cheese.  Gnocco Croccante – crispy gnocchi in a Grana Padano sauce with fresh black truffle And the ultimate cheese lovers dish: Gnocchi Gorgonzola in a Grana Padano Cheese Basket – gnocchi in a Gorgonzola sauce, served in a basket made from Grana Padano cheese

One of Italy’s most famous cheeses, Grana Padano is a hard, versatile artisan cheese. Granted PDO status in 1996, it was created by the Cistercian monks of Chiaravalle in the 12th century and is made throughout the Po Valley region (Lombardy, Piedmont, Trentino and Veneto) in northern Italy.

Made from unpasteurised, semi-skimmed cow’s milk from the production area and aged for a minimum of 9 months, as Grana Padano ages, the flavours become pronounced, savoury and complex and the texture becomes more crumbly.
