Tuesday Tool: Wand Grater

The official name for this tool is a Microplane Rasp Grater. It’s a little tool with a big name, but it deserves the title. If you cook at all and don’t have one, get one. I use one of these daily, they’re always in the dishwasher.

Making Chevre

We made this batch of chevre straight from the directions on the packet we got from New England Cheesemaking Supply Co. Since Kim and I have made this type of cheese a few times, we’ve started to experiment with using different quantities of cultures, but the recipe is great just as it is. Cheese making can seem a little intimidating, but it shouldn’t be, especially if you are having fun with a friend throughout the process.
