Ever felt your cheese platters to be somewhat lacking? But you never knew why? The answer is to hand: you were missing a Girolle! The Girolle is a device used to curl “Tete de Moine” (me neither) cheese into beautiful rosettes and if the website is to be believed, is used by 2 million households and restaurants worldwide! But why only Tete de Moine cheese? What even IS that anyway?? What OTHER cheese flowers could we make??

Full schematics and more to be found at the Home of Girolle – iI for one will be looking upon a rough shewn chunk of cheddar carved off the lump with DISDAIN from now on. Do you hear me, T&J Bernard “Ploughman’s Lunches”?
