What luck! And I gotta tell ya, there is nothing like biting into a fresh sliver of Parmigiano-Reggiano, just taken from the core of the newly broken wheel, to die for. ^_^
(You'll have to excuse the poor photos, all I had was my camera phone. It was better than nothing, but doesn't compare to a real camera.)
A whole wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano, about to be opened.
John scores the wheel to ensure an even break.
In go the wedges.
It took some work, but he got them all through the rind.
Out comes, and in goes, the big knife.
Ah, a newly opened canyon of Parmigiano-Reggiano!
John, the big cheese of Harmon's. Sorry, I couldn't resist. ^_^;
