D-Grater is a little grating plate used for at least a century along the coast of the Mediterranean.
little plate is part of a unique cooking culture that stretches from
Spain, France, Italy to the Adriatic and beyond. They are hand made and
hand painted by Spanish artisans who are part of an industry that has
been creating pottery, tile and ceramics for a millennium. Our grating
plates are beautiful and functional. They are displayable and dishwasher
safe. They conform to European Union and American standards for lead
and cadmium paint. In other words they are safe for you and your family.
Grate cheese, chocolate, nutmeg, ginger root, bread crumbs, lemon zest
and on and on. Even if you use this plate for only garlic and nothing
else, you will never regret your purchase. Our little plate grates
garlic that is as spreadable and as pliable as butter. Use it for
sauces, soups, stews, marinades, garlic bread, garlic butter. Spread it
on roasted meats for true Mediterranean cuisine. Use it in dipping oils.
We even mix it with honey and spread in on toasted bagels. You are
limited only by your culinary creativity.
Chef’s never press their garlic. Know why?
know that pressing is a process for separating the juice from the pulp
of things like grapes, olives and oranges. Garlic juice contains flavor,
aroma, amino acids, sulfides and a bunch of natural sugars. In other
words, complex chemistry. Garlic’s sugars are responsible for it’s
stickiness. Press those sugars out and you have an imbalance. You have
more pulp than juice. Garlic pulp is bitter without garlic’s natural
sweetener. Pressing garlic means that you use the most bitter part of
the garlic in your recipes. When you use the plate, everything in the
garlic remains on the plate. Brush it off the plate and you have
wonderfully balanced garlic. You have to experience it. This is garlic
perfection! This is D-Grater.
When you use D-Grater you get all the garlic you started with.
Ever notice that 2/3 of a clove of garlic stays in the your press. What a waste. You never waste a bit of garlic with D-Grater.
