Suppose I have a cheese that has a bloomy rind such as camembert or brie. I want to completely remove the rind before eating. What are some reliable methods I can use to remove the rind without wasting too much cheese? I could cut off the rind using a knife, but that wastes a lot of cheese.
When the cheese is very cold (even frozen), use a sharp knife and it will be easier to cut the rind off more precisely, to waste less cheese.
(I assume you're aware that the rind is edible and indeed enjoyed by many people. Another way to avoid wasting cheese would be to find a rind-eating friend to share your cheese with.)
