I am going to explain how to cut any shape of cheese to make sure you can elevate the presentation of your cheeseboards or charcuterie platters. Believe me, there is an easy solution whether it’s a wedge, wheel, pyramid, or chunk. With a few unexpected tricks, you will get you the perfect cheese slice every time!!
The first basic thing to know are that warm or fresh (less aged) cheese will be stickier and softer. Conversely, once cheese gets to be drier and older, it becomes brittle and crumbly, which also makes it difficult to slice nicely to present on a cheese or charcuterie board. Next, since it is always best to offer a range of cheeses on any platter, you will have to work with whatever shape you’ve got. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, having the correct cutting tool is invaluable.
