Last night, I learned (via Facebook friend, Chiara Rich) that a number of the cheese makers are offering the damaged wheels to consumers at discounted prices.
According to a post by Arci Modena:
- 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…
