It was a regal day at Whole Foods Markets Oakville as they celebrated the “crack off” of three wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano, the Italian King of Cheese, in an effort to reclaim the Guinness World Record for the number of wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano simultaneously cracked.

An annual event, on March 9th at exactly 3pm EST, Whole Foods Market Oakville joined with Whole Foods Market stores throughout the United States and the United Kingdom to simultaneously crack open hundreds of Parmigiano Reggiano wheels after which samples and recipes were offered to the delighted customers.

The excitement grew as the count-down began. The witnesses were in place to ensure that all the rules were followed exactly. The wheels were cracked with the help of Chef Matthew Foote of Oliver & Bonacini Cafe Grill, Oakville, Joe Carttarto of Jan K. Overwheel and Whole Foods own Corrado Romanino.
