Since one of the key ingredients of a panino (singular of panini) is cheese, cheese producer Sargento is designating August National Panini Month. The occasion will demonstrate how sliced natural cheeses like Sargento Vermont Sharp White Cheddar, new Sargento Sharp Provolone and new Sargento Reduced Fat Pepper Jack can make the popular sandwich form even better.
“Sargento [offers only] natural sliced cheese that provides consumers with a variety of flavor options when preparing panini or hot grilled sandwiches at home,” noted Stephanie Scholz, marketing manager at Plymouth, Wis.-based Sargento. “The prevalence of panini is too widespread to be ignored, and because cheese is such an important part of any grilled sandwich, we wanted to take the initiative to declare a month in its honor.”
As part of the celebration, Sargento has teamed up with Jason Denton, chef and author of “Simple Italian Sandwiches” and “Simple Italian Snacks,” to offer new panini recipes for each day in August on an online Panini Month Calendar to be featured at www.sargentocheese.com. All of the recipes will employ varieties of deli-quality Sargento natural cheese.
Owned and operated by the Gentine family, Sargento is a manufacturer, packager and marketer of natural shredded, sliced and snack cheeses, cheese appetizers, ingredients and sauces.
