Liza’s Tips to Eating #2: String Cheese
Pulling pieces off of string cheese is truly an art form to me. Each time I eat string cheese, I’m constantly striving to pull a perfectly thin, moderately wide, full length piece of cheese because there is nothing more satisfying. We’ve all been there – you pull a piece off and it breaks halfway down, or you’re pulling and the piece ends up being half of the cheese stick – it’s frustrating! So after years and years of experimenting with different brands, different pulling techniques, and even just giving up on pulling all together and eating the cheese stick whole, I finally discovered the variable that makes all the difference: Temperature.
Now, you don’t want the cheese to be too cold (like straight out of the fridge) because it is hard not to pull gigantic pieces. You don’t want it too hot because the string cheese won’t pull at all.
So the Liza’s Tip to Eating String Cheese – SIT ON IT– yes literally, put the packaged string cheese under your bottom. Sit on it for about a minute or two and I promise, it will make the cheese the perfect temperature for pulling perfect pieces everytime! And THIS is how you eat string cheese
