Freshly shredded parm gets big points for deliciousness but not necessarily neatness. Next time you pass a piece of it around the dinner table for everyone to grate over their pasta, try this trick: Wrap one end in parchment, and cinch it with baker’s twine. It will make the cheese easier to hold and will keep hands and the table tidy.
