Your local Whole Foods Market is one of the stores across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. that will simultaneously crack and sample more than 400 wheels of authentic Parmigiano Reggiano at 3 p.m. EST! Join us at this fun and entertaining sight to see (and taste).
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.
