The other day at the IperCoop we were asking the guy at the cheese counter about different types of cheese. He was very knowledgeable and helpful, and we made our selections. As I got ready to walk away I noticed what he was getting ready to do: break open some wheels of parmesan so he could wrap and price them. I should have asked about how much an average wheel weighs, but of course I didn't think about it at the time. Depending on the age and the brand, we can get parmesan cheese anywhere from €10 up to maybe €25 per KILO, which averages out to about $6 to $15 per pound - which is why I usually take a big chunk of parmesan back with me to the states!
