A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

If I could only eat one dish for the rest of my life, it would be pasta with Parmesan cheese. I was pumped when I was invited to the “From Wedge to Rind” event at Eataly with the Consorzio. The event was mainly cheesemongers and cheese writers. Me, I’m just a cheese lover. We were treated to a variety of dishes, of course featuring Parmigiano Reggiano, and some of the attendees had a chance to make risotto with the executive chef of Eataly.

So what was on the menu?

Sformato di Patate con Fonduta di Parmigiano Reggiano® (Potato Sformato with Parmigiano Reggiano® Sauce)

Risotto con Brodo di Parmigiano Reggiano® (Risotto with Parmigiano Reggiano® Broth)

Tagliata di Manzo con Scaglie di Parmigiano Reggiano® (Sliced Steak with Shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano®)

Torta al Olio d’Oliva e Gelato al Parmigiano Reggiano® (Olive Oil Cake with Parmigiano® Gelato)

And here were the wine pairings:

Antinori, Cervaro della Sala, Umbria

Caves Cooperatives de Donnas, Donnas, Valle d’Aosta

La Stoppa, Macchiona, Emilia Romagna

Capanna, Moscadello di Montalcino, Toscana

Every dish was delicious, and used Parmigiano Reggiano in a different way. The most surprising dish was the Torta al Olio d’Olivia e Gelato al Parmigiano Reggiano. Parmigiano gelato?!? Yeah, that’s what I was thinking! But it was delicious! Another wonderful surprise was the dessert wine pairing that went with it. Sweet, but not the usual dessert wine sweet – you know what I mean…
