Yesterday we shared some ideas for marinated goat cheese. Here's a little trick we use for these recipes or any time we want nice, clean rounds of soft goat cheese. Hint: check your medicine cabinet!
Slicing through soft, creamy goat cheese can get rather messy. Sometimes this doesn't matter, but when your presentation requires a clean cut, all you need is a piece of dental floss. Wrap the floss around your fingers, hold it taught, and pull it downward through the cheese. Ta-da! We do, of course, suggest using unflavored floss unless you like your chèvre with a hint of mint.
For a little demo, check out CHOW's video on the topic:
Do you have any other tips for slicing soft goat cheese? Or other uses for dental floss in the kitchen?
