It’s also crucial to note that block cheese that has been shred by hand at home has a far superior texture than cheese that has been pre-shredded and coated in ingredients to prevent clumping.

After the half-and-half has scalded (which is also crucial for texture), reduce the heat and whisk in the fresh shredded cheese carefully.
