This is a useful kind of profile for Stack Overflow. Less so for Seasoned Advice...

comment Can I use a meat grinder to grate cheese?
It might be worth getting a food processor -- it's made for the job and is generally useful.

@rumtscho fair point. In practice I'm generally going to dump a big pile of grated cheese into it, which contains plenty of fat.

Great answer. Now that I know it's called the slurry method, I've incorporated it into the title.

comment When should I press garlic and when should I chop it?
Slight niggle on flavour. If you chop garlic, you will cut through cells, releasing more flavour. If you crush, you will leave more cells intact, resulting in a milder flavour.
