Cheesy record

As we walked through the Whole Foods Market in Louisville last weekend, we suddenly found ourselves in the midst of history being made. A world record was on the cusp of being etched into the record books! Yes! I saw it! I was a part of history! Are you on the edge of your seat yet? You may be wondering what world record could be broken at a grocery store.

As it turns out, throughout the month of February, Whole Foods Market was celebrating Parmigiano Reggiano. On Saturday, February 27th, they capped the celebration with an in-store grand finale to honor the tradition behind the cheese while. I don't know if anything was planned for the 28th. In all of its cheese departments at 2 p.m. EST, they broke their own world record for simultaneously cracking open hundreds of wheels of 24-month-aged Parmigiano Reggiano.

They did it, and I saw it happen! They broke their own record that they, themselves, probably created to draw attention to themselves. Bravo! What an accomplishment. The cheese wheel really is something to see, and Ari watched in amazement since it is his favorite cheese. It's the first time I have ever been present for a world record being set. My goal is to now think of some obscure accomplishment that I can do that will get me into some sort of record book. Any suggestions?


  1. Maybe do the same with the stinkiest cheese in the world...Alsatian munster!
    Luke, get on facebook. love you.

  2. Yes Eva, we should make it a cross-continental event. That surely would be a record, even if it's just the two of us!

    I'm thinking about facebook, too...
