The process of transforming solid, firm food items into small pieces by rubbing the item against a grating instrument. A grater is a hand held metal device that contains numerous raised slots of varying sizes that cut food items into small pieces as the food is being rubbed across the surface of the grater. A food processor can also be used to grate foods and it may be preferred for food items that are difficult to grate on a manual grater.
