In Italy there is a special group of firemen called, The Angels of Parmesan, who were called in to rescue many wheels of Parmesan cheese that were damaged in an earthquake in Northern Italy. In the earthquake around 400,000 wheels of Parmesan were damaged or destroyed, putting the cheese industry and the economy of the region in jeopardy. Bravo guys!
I wonder if my illustrious and very witty wingman, the multilingual Italian prince, Dario Zampieri, who brews a fantastico cup of espresso at his English Conversation Cafe in Tokyo, is a Parmesan hero.
