You know no one was born with the knowledge on how to properly handle Brie and how it’s completely different from slicing a piece of Chèvre. You live and you learn.
Here is a quick and easy guide for cutting cheese – and don’t forget to use a clean or new knife for each one.
HOW TO CUT WHEELS AND ROUNDS:
This is an easy one – just like cutting a cake! Cut even-sized wedges starting from the center to the outer edge. Pro tip: start by cutting the wheel in half first. It will make it much easier to create similar sized pieces.
HOW TO CUT A WEDGE OF SOFT CHEESE:
Okay, so you have a wedge of Brie. Cut it into even slices from the point towards the rind or outer edge.
HOW TO CUT PYRAMID AND SQUARE SHAPED CHEESE:
This is also pretty simple – cut into triangles or wedges, starting from the center.
HOW TO CUT ROQUEFORT:
Cut Roquefort into triangles beginning from the lower end of the wedge. And remember, the first cut should be a corner.
