'How To Break Open a Parmesan Cheese' is 15 Minutes of Illuminating Cheese Lecture
Here's a teaser from the end, but it's the middle that's important
Cheese is magical. It just is. The entire human race owes such a large debt to whoever the first person was that transported milk in a rennet-rich cows stomach.
But cheese isn't just magical because of its lactose-destroying, umami-rich tastiness. Watch this video of Master Cheese.. Breaker(?) Carlo Guffanti taking apart an entire wheel of Parmesan. It's educational and right around the six minute mark, there's some black magic too.
And hey, you get to watch a master do his work, and that's always pretty awesome.
