Safeway Extra Cracks Parmigiano Reggiano
As one of the GrandReopening specials and events at Safeway extra the weekend of June 10th, the deli cheese department cracked a Parmigiano Reggiano. The wheel of cheese weighed in at 33 Kg and was aged for 30 months. Because of the special nature of the cheese, this is the only way the cheese should be cut, by cracking to release the flavours. This specific type of cheese is produced in the mountains of Italy and boasts a nutty strong flavour with a creamy finish.
