    Wow, 72 pounds of cheese!! I wonder how the restaurants store these, especially the places that serve that pasta from the big wheel. Presentation is impressive with the flaming and all but what happens to the wheel at the end of the evening?

    I wonder if they just wheel it into a walk-in fridge?

    Amanda Parker, basically the spokesperson for cheese education at New York's
    Murray's Cheese, sets the record straight. Here's what she said:
    Big wheels of Parmesan and large chunks of the stuff -- like what you see on display at stores -- don't have to be refrigerated thanks to Parmesan's low moisture content, which makes it less susceptible to bad bacteria. In addition, Parmesan contains a
    pH level of around 5.2-5.3
    from leftover lactic acid, and that acidity helps kill harmful bacteria. BUT the size of Parmesan that you bring home is much smaller, and has much more surface area, making it more susceptible to grow the bad stuff. And it's just not worth the risk.

    who knew? Guess Amanda Parker and now the rest of us thanks to Walt and Andrea for asking the question. I always wondered this myself, have never seen one but it sounds pretty cool.

    A good place to see one is at Azzuro at Playa Linda. All you have to do is order the "Spaghetti al Formaggio Parmagiano".
