1/5/2011: Great grater!
by Adam Kuban
OK … so I didn’t actually take this photo — but I art-directed it, so I think that counts. (Claire took it.) Plus, I took other photos today that I could have subbed in to this slot, so I’m still within the spirit of the project.
Here, I’m using the mini grater that Claire got me for Christmas from a cool little store in Soho called Kiosk. Here’s the description of the grater from the Kiosk site:
Ah…Italian invention! We were actually introduced to this grater by friends in Berlin. Brilliant. Great for those nights when you have to cook something but can’t even reach for the metal grater. Too much effort! We store our Parmesan inside of it in the fridge so it is always on standby. Our student life would have been saved with this one, it is never too late!
I’ve been doing the same — leaving it in the fridge with a chunk of cheese in it. I use it up fast enough that it doesn’t A) smell up the fridge or B) take on other fridge smells.
