Chef Wayne’s favorite tools

microplane rasp grater@1800’s Chef Wayne shares tips for using two of his favorite kitchen tools: a vegetable peeler and a microplane rasp grater.


A vegetable peeler can do more than peel carrots and potatoes. Use it as a tool for making thin slices of cheese for sandwiches, shaving coconut and make ribbons from vegetables, like cucumbers, or parmesan cheese for an elegant look on dressed salads.


Microplane rasp can create easy fine-grated cheese. You can also grate nutmeg, ginger, shallots, garlic, chocolate for drinks and desserts, or citrus zest. Find them in hardware stores.
