When cooking at home I take for granted a lot of the tools I use.
The grater, for example.
I use it several times a week, mainly for cheese but also for carrots, sometimes other vegetables and less frequently for things like chocolate or the rind of citrus fruit.
While grating cheese for a soufle today I wondered who had invented it.
Google provided the answer.
Today I’m grateful for François Boullier who invented the grater in the 1540s.
