Italy’s ‘King of Cheese’ is in town for the first ever Parmigiano-Reggiano Week in British Columbia. The event will take place at select Vancouver and Whistler restaurants between November 17th and 23rd, 2014. One of the world’s most important consortiums, Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano (Italy’s ‘King of Cheese’) is proud to announce this celebration of the world-famous, northern Italian cheese.
Ten of the premier restaurants in British Columbia will be offering special Parmigiano-Reggiano inspired dishes for guests to enjoy. Whether grated over a slice of fire-roasted pizza, delicately sprinkled inside a piping hot lasagna, or as a central ingredient in a pasta primavera, guests of these ten restaurants will be reminded why Parmigiano-Reggiano is king.
The following restaurants will be participating in BC’s Parmigiano-Reggiano Week:
British Columbia’s Parmigiano-Reggiano Week comes on the heels of the highly successful third annual Parmigiano-Reggiano Night, which took place in 188 restaurants and thousands of homes across Italy on October 25th. Parmigiano-Reggiano Night was created in order to educate Italians about the one-of-a-kind nature of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and the 3,500 farms that produce it.
