february breaking the wheel event
at tesori, we practically worship authentic italian flavor. that’s why we work so hard to source only the freshest, most authentic ingredients for our modern take on italian cuisine, and why our chef spends countless hours preparing delicious, mouth-watering recipes that breathe new life into the classic flavors of italy. but there’s one time-honored tradition that showcases some of the most intense, delicious flavors italy has to offer. it only comes around once in a while, and there’s one tomorrow: that’s right, it’s time to break the wheel.
flavor like you’ve never had before
we’re talking, of course, about breaking into a new 80 lb wheel of authentic, red cow parmigiano-reggiano cheese. this behemoth of flavor was produced in italy, using the same traditional techniques and methods that have made it the “king of cheeses” for more than six centuries. it’s a fantastic opportunity to have a unique experience and celebrate the greatness of authentic italian food.
but our breaking the wheel ceremony is about more than just tradition. if you’ve never experienced it, there’s a level of complexity to freshly-broken parmigiano-reggiano that’s unparalleled anywhere else – and quite fleeting. fresh from the wheel, the cheese has a buttery texture with notes of nuttiness and sweet fruit that fade in as little as thirty minutes. if you’ve never experienced it, it’s something you won’t want to miss.
