How do you grind up Parmesan cheese in a Food Processor? Mines been broken long time, just got a new one and don't remember. Drop chunks down while it's running?

You could simply use your basic attachments for grating, wide or fine.

Oh gosh. found the stem, can't figure out how to attach it to the blade. Now to look for the book...I'm almost out of time.

Forget the food processor and go straight to the Microplane grater. You'll have clouds of parmigiano in seconds.

True, true. A snowpocalypse of parmigiano.

Pulse, pulse, pulse. Don't just lean on the "on" button. I get the best results from the "metal" blade, not any of the disks, for Parm/Romano. Fairly small chunks and pulse, pulse, pulse.

I like a good, old-fashioned hand grater. Never really liked the micro-plane thing. I want my parmesan to have a bit more oomph than snow....
