Marco Salumeria e Formaggi : Florence, Italy

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.
