Breaking a Parmigiano-Reggiano record

Tuesday, March 27, 2012
Last Saturday, Loblaw Companies Ltd. broke the record for the most number of Parmigiano-Reggiano wheels to be cracked open simultaneously. 305 wheels were cracked open at more than 250 stores across Canada. The previous record was set in 2008 at 176 wheels.

I was at the Loblaws in the former Maple Leaf Gardens at 60 Carlton for a preview. A representative from Guinness World Records was on hand, as well as a couple of cheese-makers and a representative from the Consorzio Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano to tell us all about what makes Parmigiano-Reggiano so special, and why cracking instead of cutting it is crucial to appreciating its wonderful flavour and texture.
