Behind the Rind: Parmigianno Reggiano is a two-hour class whose highlight is the cracking of two wheels of this prized Parm. You’ll have the chance to taste from the center of the wheel, and learn why this cheese earns its place as the preferred topper for your pasta. One of the stranger items on the tasting menu: Parmesan ice cream.
