Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
The thing about soft cheese or even cookie dough is
that it's really hard to cut, but I've got a
trick for you, and it's kind of genius. It's everyday
dental floss. I'm going to take my goat cheese. Then
I'm going to take my piece of dental floss, unflavored
dental floss. And I'm gonna wrap it around my fingers
just like this. Because I want it nice and taut.
And then you're just gonna press down on the goat
cheese until you're all the way through to the bottom.
[MUSIC] And as you can see, we have our beautiful
little rounds of goat cheese. So now we have one
of my favorite cheeses, brie. This time, instead of wrapping
the dental floss around your fingers, you're going to go
and stick it directly under the center of the brie
wedge. And you're gonna criss cross the ends of the
dental floss. With one swift, firm pull, you'll pull it
through the center. Just like that. As you can see,
you have this perfectly cut wedge of brie. And now,
because we all love cookies, once again. wrap it around,
make it nice and taut and go in for the
cut. And this time instead of wrapping it around your
fingers, I'm gonna wrap it around the cookie dough and
just like we did the brie You're gonna go right
through the center. Works like a charm. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] Hi.

to the wines intense ripe fruit creating a delicious memorable
