Drop by Sigel’s in Addison Tomorrow for the Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Cutting of the Parmigiano Reggiano

Ceremonial cutting of the cheese this Saturday.

Every year, Sigel’s in Addison buys a few newly released wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano. They squirrel them away for a few years to age and, on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, they invite customers in for a ceremonial cutting of the cheese.

That would make this Saturday (20th) the big day.

Try to arrive by 1 pm to witness the process of cutting open up the wheels, which will be a five and three years old, and to have time to visit with the guest cheese monger on hand to sample a number of artisanal cheeses from small European producers, including the Beemster Co-op in Holland (the exclusive milk supplier to Ben & Jerry’s Europe).

Sounds like a perfectly tasty Saturday afternoon to me.

Sigel’s Addison is located at 15003 Inwood Rd. (And it is spelled Sigel’s. Sorry about that!)
