The Boska Girolle Machine is an updated version of a traditional cheese cutting tool that has been used for centuries. Equipped with a scraping knife for shaving down small, hard wheels of cheese into delicate cheese curls or “rosettes”, this artisanal machine is ideal for adding texture and craftsmanship to a simple cheese board. Try it with firm to semi-firm cheeses similar to fruity Tête de Moine or spicy-sweet Alisios.
- A girolle is a tool that has a sharp blade attached to a pin in the center of a wooden board designed for shaving down small, hard cheeses.
- This specific style of slicing allows the cheese’s aromatic properties and distinct flavor to develop more strongly by allowing oxygen to reach more of the surface.
- The delicate cheese curls are called “rosettes” because a full turn around the girolle produces a ribbon of cheese that resembles a flower or rose.
- The inventors of the girolle intended it to be used with Tête de Moine, but the tool can be used with any cheese of similar size and texture.
