Jacques Pepin was always trying to push the idea of shaving garlic with a vegetable peeler. I'm not too hot on that idea, I can do nice shavings faster with a knife. It is, however, and awesome way to make parmesan shavings. I used to always just do the standard paring knife technique, which is fun and old-school and makes you feel a Spanish rancher shaving his dry ham, but man the vegetable peeler works way better for producing uniform big thin flakes of parmesan.
