I'm not convinced it's a cheese. It's a cheez.

Like the bef or the loobster.

Basically, I got a new set of knives (razor sharp knives vs the cheapie serrated blades that I had before).

And well, can anyone recommend a good cheese knife because with the cheapie ones I could slice through cheddar by applying some force (they split the cheese open rather than cut it), but with my razor sharp knives, applying force doesn't seem very prudent as they cut so cleanly that the friction from the cheese means it takes even more force to cut through.

IE, I'm afraid I'm going to slice off a finger with the damn things.


For slices, get a wire cheese slicer:

i45.tinypic.com

You can make short work of slicing up an entire block without any danger.

For chunking cheese up for a sauce or auderbs, use a broad-bladed chef's knife with a sturdy, thick handle. That gives you the most control of any knife... Just remember to keep your fingertips folded under your knuckles, and you can guide the flat of the knife with your knuckles without fear of lopping your fingertips. Or you can push straight down with the flat of your hand on the back of the knife.

/ is well known for cutting the cheese.

"Cheddar
Melt-ability: Very good.

This is a classic cheese that we feel particularly fond of, especially if it happens to be Vermont-bred."


Sorry, if its not from Cheddar, Somerset, UK then it's not cheddar cheese, just a poor foreign substitute.

Best addition to melted cheese on toast, Branston pickle.

I make a delectable Croque Monsieur sandwich with
Gruyere cheese and thinly sliced premium ham.

/p.s. -not- the version with the egg on top, because... why?
//also loves baked brie but on good crackers, not bread.

Hater. Call it what you want but the traditional grilled cheese is made with American so it has to be on the list.

lordargent: I_Am_Weasel : I'm not convinced it's a cheese. It's a cheez.

I'm using cheddar slices now, which are barely cheese (but way more cheese than american).

Basically, I got a new set of knives (razor sharp knives vs the cheapie serrated blades that I had before).

And well, can anyone recommend a good cheese knife because with the cheapie ones I could slice through cheddar by applying some force (they split the cheese open rather than cut it), but with my razor sharp knives, applying force doesn't seem very prudent as they cut so cleanly that the friction from the cheese means it takes even more force to cut through.

Have you tried a wire cutter? They do the job pretty well, and with a degree of safety that a late-night wander into the kitchen after a night of drinking can't ruin.

my recipe:

sourdough bread
extra sharp cheddar
provolone
thinly sliced onions
dash salt/cracked pepper
grill in olive oil with hint of garlic

I don't know, dude... apples and cheese really do go pretty good together if you pair them right

At work we did a flatbread with bleu cheese and pears. Strongly recommended.

This is the only one you ever need for grilled cheese, used to be called Old English. Best is open-faced, broil it till it's golden-brown on top, but closed face is fine too.
