According to a report by the Italian news agency ANSA, Parmgiano Reggiano producers lost up to 10% of their production in Sunday’s 6.0 magnitude earthquake in the Province of Ferrara.

    the distribution can take place within 20-30 days without the cheese having problems… The following products can be ordered:

    - 14-month old in vacuum-packed pieces weighing 500 grams or 1 kilo at €11.5 per kilo.
    – 27-month old in vacuum-packed pieces weighing 500 grams or 1 kilo at €13 per kilo.
    – spreadable cream in 250 gram packages at €11 per kilo.

If you’ve never had fresh, creamy “spreadable” Parmigiano Reggiano, I can assure you that the airfare to Bologna and the short drive to Modena would be worth the price of admission and then some…
