Great walls of cheese!


Great walls of cheese! (1)

Parmesan cheese needs to age.

At the Hombre farm near Modena (run by the Panini family, of sticker album fame), a warehouse is full of wheels of organic Parmesan.

Two cheeses a day from 500 cows, and then two years in the store...

Modena, Italy, March 2005

You're in Italy? You missed some glorious weather by just two days!

I idly tried to compute the monetary value of that cheesy corridor. Gasp. :-)

I was... Back in London now.

I was visiting Maserati Racing to learn about the CAD/CAM system they're using - and got taken to lunch at the Hombre farm (where the Panini family also have a museum of Maserati cars!).

Much fun later when they let us drive brand new Maseratis back to the factory...

Is that two cheeses per cow per day, or per farm per day?

Per farm per day. They're big cheeses.
