Whole Foods Cherry Creek Parmigiano Reggiano Party 4/16
If you love good cheese you'll want to be in on this one: On Saturday April 16 Whole Foods/Cherry Creek will throw an Italian party, with the delectable Parmigiano Reggiano cheese as the guest of honor. Stop by the store anytime from 1PM-3PM for FREE samples as they crack open an 85 pound wheel of the cheese. You'll also have a chance to win an artisan Italian gift basket and and savings of $3 a pound on the cheese (sale is only on the 16th). Aged for 24 months, wheels are selected based on the best flavor profile from spring (herbal, floral) and fall (nutty, caramelized) milk--filled with essences from wild flowers and lush grasses that lend their hue and aroma to create the richest cheese. It is one of the best cheeses you can serve with pasta, veggies or straight up! 2375 E. 1st Ave. The parking lot is a zoo on weekends, so park in the adjacent parking structure and get a validation for FREE parking in the store.
