What I Realized: Moelsch Technique

moeslch technique [mohlsh tek-neek], n – a method of wrapping a sandwich, burrito or other similar food product, whereby the preparer folds the wrapper into the actual product to more securely wrap the food

Awesome guys, thanks.  I was really hoping to consume as much wax paper as possible during this lunch, so as always, I appreciate your use of the moelsch technique.  I know you’re doing it with the best of intentions to secure my taco more snugly, but I would infinitely rather you wrap it normally so I don’t have to ingest deli paper.  You’re lucky your soft shell tacos are so freakin’ good.  You realize that every time I eat here, I have to consciously open up my soft shell taco to remove the paper from the middle, and then re-roll my taco.  You do realize that, right?

Use of the moelsh technique can be traced back to the 16th century, when nobles would use a variation of the technique to securely seal their cigars, which made sense given that cigars are not meant to opened; how this became a trend in the food service industry remains unknown. 


Wait, moelsch technique?? I don’t get it… Can you explain?
