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!

Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Bright with herbs, redolent with chilies, deep with umami and exciting to enjoy, Vietnamese cuisine is a big part of the Minnesotan culinary landscape. Whether you grew up with spring rolls and bubble tea or are still waiting to discover the pleasures of a great bahn mi, a homemade Vietnamese repast can help highlight the best of summer or chase away the worst of winter. Using ingredients available right here at Whole Foods Market, we’ll cook our way through a big meal of Vietnamese classics, discuss the governing principles of Vietnamese culinary life and explore the items that you can stock in your pantry to give everything from rice to dessert a wonderful Vietnamese flavor. Learn the ins and outs of working with sticky rice, rice paper and rice noodles, building a quick, flavorful broth and how to make delicious quick pickles. Class is dairy free and has gluten-free options upon request. This class has hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Vietnamese Coffee
  • Fresh Vegetable Spring Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce
  • Bahn Bao (Steamed Pork Stuffed Dumplings)

  • Caramelized Lemongrass Chicken
  • Grilled Pork Bahn Mi
  • Steamed Sticky Rice Pudding with Coconut
