I was in a pub one day when I was introduced to a guy who had a very posh expensive car outside – I mean – a really posh car. Curiosity got the better of me and so I asked him what he did for a living to be driving such an beautiful car; you could have knocked me down with a feather when he told me.
He told me he buys big chunks of cheese and grates it. He explained that he buys the cheese in great big rounded lumps— grates it — puts it into polythene bags after he weights the portions and then sells it to supermarkets who then go on to sell it to people who make salads and sandwiches and various other fancy things with it.
Because he buys it in such large quantity he buys at vastly discounted prices and then after grating adds his percentage onto the selling price to make a very nice profit.
When you think about it it make a lot of sense to buy your cheese ready grated.
I mean look how easy it is to peel a potato and make chips and yet now you can buy your potatoes chipped and ready for the frying pan. When you think of it – a potato is simply a potato but with cheese, particularly grated cheese and using the vast selection of different cheeses there are you can cook a lot more recipes and you can mix the between different cheeses and even with various spices to make some delicious additives. There's nothing wrong with a little fresh basil, mozzarella, and tomato tossed in olive oil to top your favorite pasta. Fresh or dried, herbs are a delicious addition to your favorite cheese-based dishes. If you were to experiment a bit with these mixtures you could corner a market for yourself.
If you fancy having a go at this I have a few tips for you that might help once you get started.
Some might experience trouble when grating cheeses like Cheddar, or Mammary Jack, or Mozzarella. Because the cheeses are not firm enough they might continuously break apart or clog the holes in your grater. A good idea to help stop this is to freeze your cheeses for about half an hour before grating and to coat the face of your grater with non-stick cooking spray. Also only use the largest holes in your grater. Of course you will experience various problems with different cheeses but fundamentally what I have just told you is the way to go.
There are also various ways to grate your cheeses and a large variety of prices for the graters. I prefer a method where I don't need to hold the chees and skin my knuckles and so would recommend a stainless steel Moulin which should cost you between £50 and £150 from Amazon.
This is a real inexpensive way to set yourself up in business and an easy one to get started; all you need is — the cheese — poly bags — scales — and a means of grating big lumps of cheese.
