Have you been slicing cheese wrong all along?

A faux pas far more common than one would expect, it has come to our attention that a cheese crime is being committed atop grazing platters everywhere. Said to be an offence worse than double-dipping, in France, the misstep is called ‘pointing the cheese’ and occurs when one cuts the more desirable tip off a wedge. You see, the centre of the wheel is where most of the flavour resides, so by hacking that portion off, the brie-lliant experience is ruined for everyone else. To put a stop to the flavour hogging, it is imperative that slices are cut from the radius (outer edge) to the centre. To encourage those around you to fall in line, offer to make the first cut before subtly slicing a few example slivers. Cheese crisis averted.
