How to cut cheese

The way a cheese is cut depends largely on its shape and size. The most important thing to keep in mind when cutting a cheese is to divide cheese so that everybody has an equal share of the inside and outside.

  • Allow the cheese to attain room temperature before cutting, as it will be softer and easier to cut.

  • Use wired cheese cutters to cut soft cheese.

  • Keep in mind not to saw the cheese, but cut it in one fluid motion.

  • While handling soft cheese, which has extremely soft texture, it is better to keep them in its jar and take some out with the help of a spoon.

  • Use specialised knives while cutting different types of cheeses, so as not to contaminate them.
