Grating Cheese Like A Pro!

By Cavalera McCarthy

You could call me one of those home chefs that have mastered the pre made recipes but there are a couple of meals just love to make from scratch and almost all of the meals include my fav extra, CHEESE! Cheese is such a worthy ingredient, why do you think the best cooks in the world use it . Yes , I am talking about the Italians! Pasta, Pizza …then some more pasta again.

If you are going to understand the concepts of Grating Cheese, it’s important that you know that the whole thing is dependent on three top factors.

* What you are planning on cooking * The Cheese (parmesan, edam, colby etc…) * What type is the grater? (hand, rotary, drum etc…)

The Food you are making

Firstly , taking a look at the recipe will give you a hint about what techniques are going to be implemented to grate the cheese efficiently . Are you making Italian? Maybe it’s something else? Or possibly just cheese on toast. Some meals are going to need different cheese and different consistencies of cheese, which brings me to the next factor .

The Type of Cheese you are using

Some cheeses grate really easily and other types of cheese just won’t grate at all. Firmer, Harder types of cheese generally grate very well, while spongy cheeses are usually best to be broken up . Mozzarella is quite often broken up over the top of pizzas, and parmesan is usually always grated finely over pastas . You can also finely chop parmesan as well as turn it into a fine powder.

The Type of Grater

Average people use a stock hand grater when they are cooking at home but from experience this isn’t always the brightest option. Rotary Cheese Graters are a really good choice, as are Drum Cheese Graters. You would more than likely use these two types of grater if you are cooking for a lot of guests and using generic cheeses that you buy at the supermarket deli. Parmesan requires it’s own type of grater and of course, it’s much finer than most graters.
