This event has already happened

Cheese experts at every Whole Foods Market store across the country will simultaneously crack 80-pound wheels of the iconic cheese Parmigiano Reggiano. Cracking the wheels requires an expert hand and usually takes about half an hour using an official five-piece knife set from Italy’s Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano Reggiano. The traditional cracking method reveals Parmigiano Reggiano’s delectably crunchy crystalline internal structure.

Other activities will include tastings of the freshly-carved cheese, samplings of freshly-made cacio e pepe (an Italian pasta dish) and featured pairings. Shoppers will have the chance to purchase Parmigiano Reggiano at a 30% discount from Feb. 22-24.
