Goat cheese is perfect for dishes such as salads, snack foods and also as a side to hot dishes such as meat or vegetables.

On many occasions we can serve a whole cheese wheel, but when we go to cut it we must be aware of some techniques to ensure it does snot crack and split in half.


An easy and effective option is to cut the goat cheese with a sharp and damp knife. At each cut you will have to wet the knife to ensure it is always humid; in this way you will stop it sticking to the cheese and avoid it crumbling into chunks as you cut.

With this technique, your slices of cheese will be perfect.

Another much more refined but equally effective way of cutting goat cheese to perfection is to use a thread. This is a good alternative for those who do not have very sharp knives at home.

Cut a piece of string or unflavoured dental floss long enough to cover the edges of the wheel and leave a length at either end. Clean the string, wrap the cheese with the thread marking the portion you want to cut and then cross the extreme end of the string.

Then simply pull the string at both ends so the thread slides through the cheese cutting it perfectly and efficiently.
