FLAVORINGS FOR BAKING
ITALIAN GRATING CHEESES
Do you want to put sodium and potentially sawdust on your pasta? Of course not. Based on the shameful legal woes surrounding "cheese" made by large food manufacturers, it's best to buy Parmigiano-Reggiano, Asiago, and Romano cheeses cut from wheels of the Italian cheeses imported to the United States. They cost a lot more, but considering the powerful flavor impact of a small amount, they're a good value.
Cheap chocolate is mostly sugar-, fat-, and filler-laden, with minimal cocoa. Develop a palate for dark, fresh, low-sugar chocolate, and you can get antioxidants your body needs, and elevate your mood and energy levels. Good-quality cocoa costs more, but your healthier heart and head will thank you.
