5 Cracking the Parm!

Have you ever wondered how to open wheel of Parmesan cheese that weighs eighty pounds?

I found out at my local Harmon's Grocery store.

This is a massive wheel of cheese, retailed at $1,400.

The medallion is taken off the side and the cheese is scored down the middle...

scored down the sides...flipped over and scored down the middle.

Then these knives are jammed in...

homage to the movie Psycho....

Here's three in a row...

The sides also get poked.

With two knives and a slight opposite twist...

Craaaack!  The Parmesan wheel is open!

The first thing you gotta do is take a deep whiff....

aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh....nothing like the smell of fresh Parm....

She takes out some crumbles to share with the hungry shoppers.

Guess what?

If you live in Utah and have a Harmon's Grocery by you, they are cracking open another wheel!

When?  Saturday, April 24th at 1:00 P.M.

Hope to see you there!


  1. I've seen this on TV but never in person. Thanks for the heads-up. I don't often shop at Harmon's so I wouldn't have known about it.

    Great pictures.

  2. I love Harmons and I love the cheese bar.

  3. Harmons is a great place for cheese and bread. Love your pictures and explantion. Wish I could have been there.

  4. Thats a whole lotta Parm!
