Cheese Storage 101
We’ve all been there.
You get your cheese home, eat half of the wedge immediately, wrap it up and stick it in the fridge for a future snacking session. Only… the next time you visit your cheese, something is different… it’s harder, it doesn’t look the same, and it seems to have a new strange flavor.
Believe it or not, there is a right and a wrong way to store cheese. So be nice to your cheese, and let it breathe a little.
Cheese is a living, breathing thing after all.
Let your cheese breathe by using the right type of wrap, and keep it in a separate spot in your fridge to prevent the other smelly things in there (onions, leftovers, those beets from last week, etc.) from seeping into your perfectly aged pittig gouda, or your young and stinky gorgonzola piccante.
