Urgh, I have never heard that, and I definitely always have a wedge of Parmigiano-Reggiano in the fridge. Since I'm a cheese geek, I looked it up, and couldn't even find any references to aging cheese inside a deer. That sounds extremely inefficient. Here's
what I did find about the process of making and aging the cheese.
How they make the shaky cheese they keep on the supermarket shelf next to the jarred pasta sauces is a mystery to me. I'm pretty certain that's not real cheese (but it does thicken up a sauce nicely.)
