holiday surprise

Today I received a package in the mail.
I did not order anything, nor did I enter a contest, but there it was…
A beautiful, shiny new Wüsthof offset cheese knife…

Did you hear that loud thunk a few hours ago?
Well that was my jaw dropping…!

This cheese knife features an acid-etched blade to prevent cheese from sticking to the side of the blade. It was gorgeous to see and felt like an extension of my hand.
I had to try it out right away…!
Wrapping papers and box scattered, I gave the knife a bath in hot soapy water and a good rinse.
I then pulled out every cheese I had in my chill chest drawer and sliced away.

It was damn perfect…!
Firm cheeses and soft cheeses were sliced thick and sliced thin with my hand on this magical instument with barely an effort.

What a stunningly beautiful knife that handles like a dream and does what it says it does…slice cheese.
And it slices cheese perfectly.

Well…whoever is my magic and very generous gourmet elf, merci mille fois…!
I will thank you whenever I slice a Manchego or a Morbier, a Brie or a blue,
a Camembert or a Chevrotin du Mont Cenis…
and my guests will give thanks you, too.
Happy gourmet holidays...!

That is one good looking knife! I'm sure it cuts like a dream.

Merci, is a beauty indeed and really special.
But I expect I will work it well over the holiday as it does an amazing job with cheeses and other foods as well.
