Chef'sChoice 2-pc. Cheese Knife Set This Cheese Knife Set is the perfect accompaniment to a cheese board platter for pre-dinner cheese plates or for afternoon wine and cheese parties. The two knives are designed to handle any type of cheese. The bell-shaped wide blade will cut effortlessly through crumbly bleu cheese, firm and semi-soft cheeses. Slice wedges from round or cube for easy pairing with crackers. The heart-shaped pointed blade will slice or chip off morsels off aged hard cheeses, such as Parmesan or Romano. Also works well to separate tough rinds from edible cheese bits and for spreading soft cheeses. Each knife has a heavy duty stainless steel blade and full-length tang for added balance and control, and is double riveted for lasting durability. Great gift for a host or hostess. (Cheese board not included.)
In a small saucepan over medium−high heat, combine carrots, broccoli, water,
and bouillon. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, and set aside. In a large saucepan, cook onion in butter
over medium heat until onion is translucent. Stir in flour and pepper; cook
1 minute. Stir in milk. Bring to a boil, then stir in cheese until melted.
Stir in reserved vegetables and cooking liquid. Heat through, and serve with
fresh crusty bread.
