One of the world’s most important consortiums, Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano (The Consortium of Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese), Italy’s ‘King of Cheese,’ is proud to announce the first Parmigiano-Reggiano Week in British Columbia, a celebration of the world-famous, northern Italian cheese, taking place at select Vancouver and Whistler restaurants between November 17th and 23rd, 2014.
Ten of the premier restaurants in British Columbia will be offering special Parmigiano-Reggiano inspired dishes for guests to enjoy. Whether grated over a slice of fire-roasted pizza, delicately sprinkled inside a piping hot lasagna, or as a central ingredient in a pasta primavera, guests of these ten restaurants will be reminded why Parmigiano-Reggiano is king.
The following restaurants will be participating in BC’s Parmigiano-Reggiano Week:
- Araxi Restaurant + Bar
- Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill and Enoteca
- The Grill Room at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler
- Italian Kitchen
- La Cucina Ristorante Italiano
- La Quercia
- Novo Pizzeria and Wine Bar
- Trattoria Vancouver
- Trattoria Park Royal
British Columbia’s Parmigiano-Reggiano Week comes on the heels of the highly successful third annual Parmigiano-Reggiano Night, which took place in 188 restaurants and thousands of homes across Italy on October 25th. Parmigiano-Reggiano Night was created in order to educate Italians about the one-of-a-kind nature of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and the 3,500 farms that produce it.
