Concord's Crucolo Day with 400-pound cheese wheel

Melanie Wong | Dec 15, 2013 11:43 AM

A news item about Crucolo Day and parade in Concord, MA caught my eye. Mostly because the honoree was a 400-pound wheel of Italian cheese that I was not familiar with. Actually my favorite part of the reporting was reading that the name of the Concord Cheese Shop cheese buyer is Brie Hurd.

Apparently Crucolo cheese is the product of just one producer in the Trentino regions of Italy and available in three types.

Looking for info here, I found this one rec by cheesehound, DonShirer,

Who else recommends this cheese?
