Our Mothers Day gift ideas will make you say cheese!
Anyone who spends time in the kitchen knows that there are specific utensils for just about every type of food. For example, a paring knife is used primarily to peel fruit and vegetables. And just as your knife block is filled with specialised knives, different types of cheese require distinct utensils.
Our Laguiole by Jean Dubost Cheese Knife Set has everything you could need to throw an incredible cocktail party, to serve a delicious cheese platter, or simply to enjoy a snack in the middle of the night. So if youre looking for Mothers Day gift ideas for your cheese-loving mum, you can stop your search.
Whats the purpose of cheese spreader?
As you may have guessed, a cheese spreader is designed to spread soft cheeses, like Brie, Neufchtel, Camembert, and soft goat cheese. Soft cheese is usually aged for more than a month, but less than hard cheeses. For the mum with a soft spot for soft cheese, our Jean Dubost Cheese Knife Set should be at the first on your list of Mothers Day gift ideas.
When would you use a cheese cleaver?
As cheese sits and ages, it grows harder and more dry. With these harder cheeses, youll find that a regular knife just wont do. Cheese cleavers, due to their weight, are ideal for cutting through semi-hard and hard cheeses. Throwing a soiree? If you want to prepare a cheese platter that includes Cheddar, Swiss, Gouda, or Asiago, a cheese cleaver will help you slice perfect and precise portions. We know what youre thinking: your list of Mothers Day gift ideas just got one cleaver-sized item bigger!
What is a spoke-tipped cheese knife?
When you see a thin knife with two prongs, or spokes, at the end, youre dealing with a spoke-tipped cheese knife. These are used to serve aged cheeses. I can hear you asking, arent all cheeses aged? Well, for the most part. Ignoring fresh cheeses like Mozzarella, youll find that cheese gains its distinctive flavour due to several factors, including the aging process.
If you arent sure which knife should be used with what cheese, the spoke-tipped universal knife is your best friend. Sharp and ready for anything, this knife can be proudly placed beside both soft and hard cheeses. And if youre wondering, the spokes on the end are intended to help hard and crumbly cheeses, like feta, break apart naturally, thus maintaining the flavor.
Get a load of these ABS handles!
Finding Mothers Day gift ideas for clumsy cheese-lovers isnt easy! But the utensils in our Laguiole by Jean Dubost Cheese Knife Set are finished with gorgeous and sturdy ABS plastic handles. So you dont have to worry about clumsily cracking these beautiful handles on the floor or in the sink.
