For The Love Of Cheese, Diners Unite In Italy
Are you ready for the biggest Italian dinner to ever grace the country? Using social media and other tools to spread the word, Parmigiano-Reggiano promoters are attempting to get everyone in Italy eating the same (cheese-centric) meal at the same time.
Organizers say the dinner is designed to promote the revitalization of the Parma region. Cheese producers there are still struggling because earlier this year, a series of earthquakes toppled shelves containing millions of dollars worth of the cheese, aged for two years in giant, five-story buildings.
