Characterised by fragments of grated cheese found everywhere around the kitchen afterwards - often accompanied by a larger, dry block of remnant cheese left out for many days after said cheese-grating incident.
Particularly common in Rootes P 2nd kitchen, and generally anywhere inhabited by a German-Italian partnership.
Jasper: "Sorry dude, Francesco and I made pesto pasta last night and we were hover-grating the cheese over it."
Dude 1: "Aw not again dammit."
Pit: "In Luxembourg..."
Hover-grating is the only way to truly enjoy a German-Italian dish.
