Hint: Grating Hard Cheese

Grating a hard cheese such as Parmesan or gruyere for a quiche or similar dish that calls for a goodly amount of cheese can be tiring. To make the task less fatiguing, rotate the box grater so that it lies flat on the work surface with the handle facing you. Grip the handle with one hand and push the cheese away from you and down on the grater. Thus, instead of having to press the block of cheese firmly sideways against the grater, force is applied downwards and away, a much easier task, since it employs more and larger muscles.
