Thousands of shekels are riding on these little blue wheels. Click on the photo and read the writing on the rind. Parmigiano-Reggiano 2006 !
The stack of huge cheese wheels caught my eye and I entered the fancy cheese and wine store in the shuk Mahaneh Yehuda market. Photos were all I got, the rest was way too expensive.
They offer cheeses from around the world in a mind-boggling variety. It is exciting just to see them.
Cheesemaking is such an art and such hard and satisfying work. This I know from working a year and a half in the cheese dairy of a sheep farm. Cheese, yogurt, and just plain rich milk from sheep are the best!
