We also stopped by the Marco Salumeria e Formaggi stand in Mercato Centrale.
I think we elicited a few bemused smiles when out of the massive Parmigiano Reggiano chunks there...
we asked for a small sliver that we could eat in a single sitting:
The stuff was absolutely lovely though. It had a sweetness akin to a nice apricot and a beautiful dramatic flavor that held for a good 5 to 7 seconds. Bonus was the hardened crystals throughout, which when bitten into, packed a super burst of flavor. Really wonderful stuff.
