What would you do if you were given an entire wheel of authentic and delicious Parmigiano Reggiano? If it were me, I would grab my biggest knife and start hacking at it! But, in actuality the best way to open a Parmigiano wheel is to crack it open. Here is a great video by fellow curd nerds Channel Cheese that shows just how it’s done!
