One of the first pieces of entertaining “equipment” that I received as a gift from my mother when I had my first apartment was a cheese button: a Lucite disk (yes, I’m dating myself) with three sharp legs that you stick into a piece of hard cheese so that you can steady it as you’re slicing it without putting you (or your guests’) fingers on the cheese that someone will eventually eat.
Good idea then... good idea now! But whereas (OK, I used to practice law) the original design was merely a place to push down on the cheese, the newer model has significant improvements.
The Cheese Grip by Farnmara is downright elegant: brushed 18/8 stainless steel with a shape that actually let’s you get a solid grip with one hand while you slice the cheese with the other.
This is an item that has earned a place in every home that serves cheese. And it makes a beautiful hostess gift! A simple and elegant Cool Tool.
