Behind the Scenes: Cubing Cheese for the Loaf Love Tour
In order to have lots of yummy cheese to share with everyone we meet, we cube samples for each Loaf Love Tour store event.
Typically we sample 3 different types of Tillamook Cheese! Yum! The first step is to cut the 5lb loafs of cheese into 3 different large squares.
We then start the cubing process! We use a special cubing tool for this.
It has 6 wires that cut through the cheese. We cut it 3 different ways to create 1/2 inch cubes.
There are 150 cubes in each large square! We put 300 cubes of cheese in our 6 sampling bags for each event.
Our team has around 1,800 cubes of cheese on us at each event! That’s a lot of cheese to go through in a day and sometimes we do! This all depends on how many Tillafans stop by to check us out!
This last week, we had a race on how fast someone could break down the cubes. Cheesy Dee cubed 300 samples in 1 minute and 52 seconds. There is an ongoing internal competition to see who can cube the fastest. Ready! Set! Cube!
