7 New Ways to Use Kitchen Equipment You Already Have
6. Use Your Vegetable Peeler on Cheese . . . and Chocolate.
Ever wonder how to get those beautifully perfect cheese curls that grace salads in food magazines? Or those lovely perfect flakes of chocolate on a cake? They’re peeled, using a regular old vegetable peeler. (You probably already have one in your drawer.) You’ll get more flavor from cheese curls, but you’ll also consume more cheese than when it’s grated—so don’t go overboard! Chocolate is another nice food to peel. You get light, lovely little flakes that deliver flavor without adding too many calories. Just be sure your chocolate is slightly warm (but not melting) before you peel it to get prettier curls.
