Come a little early (between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.) and take advantage of some Parm-a-licious recipe samples from our department teams.

 

Breaking into a wheel of our 24-month aged Parmigiano Reggiano is like cracking open a bit of happiness. And our cheesemongers take cracking these wheels very seriously. There is a centuries-old art to opening the cheese wheels by using official tools (five different types of knives) so the internal crystalline structure and crumbly texture is left intact.
