This Parmesan Dip Recipe sets a high bar for savory dips in a world of dips. It’s the perfect condiment for chicken wings, chicken fingers, or crudités. This gourmet blend will bring a sophisticated twist to any snack table.
The secret ingredient that takes this dip to another level is malt vinegar. Whether presented at a Super Bowl party or as a standalone treat for a quiet evening, this parmesan dip promises an unforgettable experience.
Dipping your chicken wings in a rich and creamy Parmesan dip is a culinary delight that takes classic finger food to a whole new level of flavor and indulgence.
The sharp, nutty notes of Parmesan cheese complement the crispy, savory exterior of the chicken wings, creating a symphony of taste and texture with every bite. The creamy consistency of the dip provides a delightful contrast to the crispy wings, making it a perfect pairing.
Most regular grocery stores have malt vinegar, but it can be hard to find on the shelf. I found mine on the top shelf in the vinegar section. You can also purchase malt vinegar on Amazon.
Malt vinegar tastes different from other types of vinegar primarily because of its unique production process and key ingredient. Malted barley is this vinegar’s main ingredient that gives it flavor.
Barley grains are soaked in water and allowed to germinate, and then dried and roasted. This process, called malting, develops the barley’s starches into sugars, which yeast can ferment.
Malted vinegar is known for its rich and robust flavor, with a depth that makes it a popular condiment for foods like fish and chips. Its flavor profile makes it a delicious complement to hearty and fried dishes.
I used to travel to Vancouver, BC, and my co-workers loved taking me to a restaurant called Earls. The food was amazing! This recipe came from their cookbook.
Parmesan cheese has deep cultural and historical significance in Italy. It has been produced for over 800 years and is often referred to as the “King of Cheeses” or “Parmesan Gold.” It plays a vital role in Italian cuisine and is celebrated worldwide for its exceptional quality and taste.

Milk: 3 tablespoons
Sugar: 1 tablespoon

Dried Basil: 1/2 teaspoon
Dried Oregano: 1/2 teaspoon

How long does Parmesan Cheese Dip last in the refrigerator?
This parmesan dip will last 3-4 days in the fridge when stored in an airtight container.
Can you freeze this delicious dip?
I would not recommend freezing this dip because it contains dairy. After thawing, dairy takes on a grainy texture that changes the taste of the dip.
- Hallowed Vegetables: Hollow out colorful vegetables like bell peppers or cabbage to create an edible dip bowl.
- Bread Bowl: Create a bread bowl by hollowing out a round loaf of bread, such as sourdough bread. Cut the removed bread into squares to make croutons.
- Dip Platter: Arrange an assortment of dips on a platter, each in its section, surrounded by complementary dippers. The platter can include fresh vegetables, breadsticks, and chicken fingers.
