Cheese & Butter Guide by Marky's
There are two simple things that will give a clear idea of what Grating Cheese is. Firstly, it is definitely an aged cheese. Secondly, it is a hard cheese with pungent odor developed in the process of maturing. Although these cheeses rarely become zests of cheese plates, undoubtedly they are ubiquitous seasonings to the huge diversity of dishes. Freshly grated cheese is both versatile and irreplaceable as it adds special texture and savory flavor to your favorite pizza, or pasta, or salad, or soup, or sauce, or any other masterpiece of your cookery.
Special attention should be paid, however, to the difference between the grated cheese and shredded cheese. These two techniques or styles of cheese “transformation” can have a great impact on how your dish will finally look like. So, if you shred the cheese, fine long and narrow strips come out. Normally, shredded cheese melts or cooks slower than grated one. The latter form means that the cheese is fractured into small particles, which you sprinkle on top of your dish like a condiment.
