Parmigiano Reggiano Wheel Cracking!
Saturday, March 9th
2:00 PM
Specialty Department, Free

Who doesn't love free cheese samples? Join us in our store as we simultaneously crack and sample over 400 wheels of authentic Parmigiano Reggiano across all of our stores in the US, Canada and the UK.

 

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. Come check out this delicious phenomenon!

No Wheat-za Pizza
Monday, April 21st
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $10 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Of all the things to de-gluten, pizza is one of the trickiest. The act of stretching a pizza crust relies on the gluten in wheat flour to make it supple and flexible, but we’ve got ways around that. Join us back in the cooking classroom to try two different gluten-free homemade pizza crusts, including the unusual and delicious cauliflower crust, and sample different brands of gluten free pizza to determine which pizza should join you next time hunger strikes without warning. This class is gluten free, with dairy-free options available upon request, and will be a demonstration, rather than hands-on cooking class. Pre-registration is required.

 

Pre-registration for classes and select events required. See class description for specific instructions. Registration required no later than 48 hours prior to the class date. Call 612-927-8141, visit our customer service desk, or register online to pre-register. Classes and events are subject to change or cancellation. If you cannot attend your class, you must call Whole Foods Market Lake Calhoun and cancel at least 48 hours in advance. You will receive classroom credit for the amount of the class to be used no later than three months from the date of the class that you registered for. Please call the above number or contact  Culinary Director Ani Loizzo at Ani.Loizzo@wholefoods.com if you have any questions. Thank you!
