I got an invite to a wonderful lunch event that Parmigiano Reggiano had in Stockholm because we in Sweden eat a lot of cheese (we ate 1434 ton of that cheese last year in Sweden).
We got to try cheese that was 2, 3 and 5 years old and it was really interesting to try the same cheese but different age. And I had never had 5 years old cheese before and it was a bomb of tastes in my mouth and you don’t need to try much at all. Even a small crumb of the old cheese filled my mouth with the taste of it.
Here is the cheese with the youngest to the left:
But besides getting to try some different cheese we had the opportunity to make pasta together with the Italian chef Francesco Bigliardi from Trattoria Masticabrodo. I took the chance to help out the chef as you can see here:
Thanks to Erika Jureskog for the photo
Here you can see photos from the event and what we got served during the lunch:
And here is a very short interview with Francesco Bigliardi but since he don´t speak English and I don’t speak Italian we used a interpreter.
