PARMIGIANO REGGIANO – HALF WHEEL
Two year aged Parmesan from Tortiano, presented as a wheel cut widthways for event presentation.
An open wheel of Parmesan is a classic sight at an Italian wedding. Traditionally, the wheel is cut in half around the middle, then the cheese is carved out in almond-sized pieces and served with prosecco or champagne. Small slices of Prosciutto di Parma or Culatello di Zibello often accompany the cheese as well.
Using traditional tools, we open the wheel and send it ready to present at your event or special occasion. Half a wheel of parmesan weighs at least 19kg, and we suggest that this will serve around 150 people. Do call us for advice.
