JUST when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another way to grate cheese, along comes a genius food hack.
Food guru Georgie Halfacre has set tongues wagging by revealing that there’s an even easier way to prepare parmesan cheese – and make zero mess in the process.
TikTok star Georgie, who has amassed 480,000 followers thanks to her regular food, travel and lifestyle content, posted a video titled: “the easiest way to grate a large amount of parmesan quickly.”
In it, she can be seen cutting up a generous helping of parmesan ready for her dinner.
However, rather than taking a cheese grater and doing it by hand, Georgie then pops the cheese into a blender, before blitzing it on high power.
The result? Finely grated parmesan cheese ready to sprinkle on your favourite pasta dish or salad – but without any huge effort.
Explaining why she’s a big fan of following this method, rather than buying a packet in the supermarket, Georgie wrote in the comment section: “I always do this as soon as I get a chunk of parmesan.
“It’s so much easier to use and doesn’t have any additives like the pre-grated stuff.”
But Georgie said that it wasn’t a one size fits all, and that she decides when to use her food hack.
Replying to one user who wasn’t convinced, Georgie said: “I just use it for certain recipes… not all! I made a huge kale salad yesterday and it works PERFECTLY for that.”
Others said they would also be following her handy trick. One wrote: “OMG this is genius.”
Another tagged their friend into Georgie’s post and commented: “When I make you pasta next weekend, I’m going to actually do this.”
Elsewhere, countless others said it was helpful and that they couldn’t believe they hadn’t thought of it sooner.
However, it wasn’t without debate, as many social media users said they’d prefer to put the effort in and grate it.
