In a bizarre chain of events, a Sydney-based environmental scientist was visiting a grocery story that was about to close down and came across a 35kg wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano.
The cheese, he tells Buzzfeed, weighed about as much as an 11-year-old child, and was just sitting around the store. Though it wasn’t officially for sale, he negotiated a sweet deal to take it home for himself, and then immediately posted it on a Facebook swapping board. He estimated the cheese was valued at over $2,000 and hoped to exchange it for a car.
