Here are a couple of tips for preparing cheese...
1) If you need to grate cheese for a recipe, chill it first. Chill hard cheeses in the freezer for 30 minutes and soft cheeses for 15 to 20 minutes, or until firm to the touch. It will grate much easier for you.
2) 4 ounces of block cheese equals one cup shredded or grated.
3) Grate any cheese that you plan to add to a recipe, it will melt much more quickly with no clumping.
