    Je fais une traduction sur le fromage et pour l'expression 'brosser le fromage', je voulais savoir si je pourrais dire brush the cheese, ou s'il y avait un autre mot, mieux approprié.

    Or for example ‘Parmigiano Reggiano cheese wheels are brushed and turned continuously.’ And you can buy a cheese brush.
    So I guess that’s your verb. :)

    American English
    Brushing cheese is a very technical concept. While it's correct to use the word "brushed," as an American I might go with "wash" - because a cheese is going to be marketed here as a "washed-rind" cheese or an "ale-washed" cheese.
