Learning how to cut cheese wedges perfectly is a skill that every cheese lover should know! After all, there’s nothing worse than cutting into a beautiful wheel of cheese only to have it crumble and fall apart.

Fortunately, it’s not as difficult as you might think. With a little practice, you’ll be able to cut wedges that are both precise and beautiful. Here’s what you need to know:

First, choose the right type of knife. A sharp knife is key for clean, precise cuts. A dull knife will cause the cheese to crumble and tear.Second, make sure the cheese is at the correct temperature. Cheese should be slightly firm to the touch but not hard or crumbly. If it’s too cold, it will be difficult to cut; if it’s too warm, it will be too soft and may squish out from under your knife.

Third, use a gentle sawing motion to cut the cheese into wedges. Don’t press down too hard – you want to avoid crushing the cheese as you cut. And finally, enjoy your perfectly-cut cheese wedges!

What You Need

All you need to cut perfect cheese wedges is a sharp knife and a cutting board. A serrated knife will work, but a sharp non-serrated knife is better. If you are using a hard cheese, like cheddar, you may want to use a wire cheese cutter for precision cuts.

##Heading:Step One
Cut the end off the cheese wedge so that you have a flat surface to work with. Some people like to eat the end piece, but it can be saved for another use or discarded.

##Heading:Step Two
Place the cheese wedge on the cutting board with the flat end down. Cut the cheese wedge in half with a sharp knife If the cheese is very hard, you may need to use a sawing motion rather than trying to slice through it in one cut.

##Heading:Step Three
Cut each half of the cheese wedge into thirds. Now you should have six equal pieces of cheese. If you are using a wire cheese cutter, insert it into each piece of cheese and press down to get clean, even cuts.

You can now enjoy your perfect cheese wedges!

The Right Way to Cut a Cheese Wedge

Cutting a cheese wedge is easy if you have the right tools. All you need is a sharp knife and a cutting board

First, cut the cheese in half horizontally. Then, cut each half into wedges. For triangular wedges, cut the cheese at an angle. For rectangular wedges, cut straight down.

If your wedges are too big or too small, you can adjust the size by cutting more or less horizontal slices. Just be sure to cut evenly so that all of the wedges are the same size.

Now that you know how to cut cheese wedges perfectly every time, you can enjoy them with your favorite crackers or fruit.

The Wrong Way to Cut a Cheese Wedge

You’ve been cutting cheese wedges wrong your whole life. The next time you’re at a party or dining out and need to cut a cheese wedge, use this method for the perfect slice every time.

Here’s the wrong way to do it:

1. Cut a thin slice off the point of the wedge, about 1/4 inch thick.
2. Turn the wedge so the flat side is facing you.
3. Slice the wedge in half lengthwise.
4. Slice each half into thirds or fourths, depending on how many pieces you want.

Here’s the correct way:

1. Cut a thin slice off the point of the wedge, about 1/4 inch thick.
2. Turn the wedge so the flat side is facing you and position it in front of you like a book, with the long side running horizontally.
3. Slice vertically down one side of the wedge, cutting through to the other side but not all the way through the point of the wedge (you should still be able to see some cheese connecting the two sides at the point).
4. Move your knife over about an inch and slice down again until you’ve cut through the entire wedge and are left with a bunch of triangle-shaped slices of cheese


If you followed the instructions above, you should now have perfectly cut cheese wedges that are ready to serve. Enjoy!
