Gourmet Grating Cheese

Browse our great selection of Gourmet Grating Cheese. Grating or shredding is a method of passing the cheese over a serrated surface, creating fine (finer) pieces of cheese that melt easier than the original piece. Hard cheeses are easier to grate or shred than softer cheeses as the letter tend to lump together again after being grated or shredded. Parmigiano Reggiano may be the best known cheese that if often grated, but many other hard cheeses are great graters and they may bring a different new flavor to your dish.
