Girolle (Revolving Cheese Cutter)
The Tête de Moine is a true delicacy, but its international success is due to the instrument to manipulate it, the girolle, whose invention in the early eighties multiplied the cheese's sales tenfold. It was a resounding success, with sales close to 3 million copies and a brutal boosting effect on the consumption of Swiss cheese.
With the girolle you don't have to be an expert to scrape the cheese, but anyone can create showy flowers to surprise everyone at the table.
