•••featuring special guest Paolo Crotti from Roncadella dairy•••
Join us for an evening of mingling and clinking glasses! We are very excited to be hosting Paolo Crotti from the caseificio Roncadella located just outside of Reggio-Emilia, in northern Italy. Roncadella is one of the dairies we selected to work with during our Parmigiano Reggiano research trips we took the last two years. The cheesemaker for Roncadella, Marisa, is the only female cheesemaker making Parmigiano Reggiano. Paolo has worked closely with the Roncadella dairy since he was a boy. His dairy farm is one of the 6 farms that partner with Roncadella and he is the commercial manager for that farm. He also works with a nearby winemaker. We’ll hear details about the dairy and what makes it special, taste the Roncadella Parmigiano Reggiano in different recipes and we’re hoping that we can taste his wine at this event, but if not, we’ll have several other Italian wines from the Parma region.
We’ll crack a wheel of Roncadella Parmigiano Reggiano at the event that was specially selected by Paolo (the cheese tastes best right after the wheel is first cracked!), and feature the cheese in several sweet and savory foods.
Ticket includes 2 drinks and you’ll leave with a few recipes, a hunk of Roncadella Parm to use at home and a happy belly.
Doors open at 5:45 and we’ll have a full bar ready to go, serving cocktails and some specialty non-alcoholic cocktails as well. Event begins at 6:00. Come and unwind with us for a delicious time!
