Since today is National Cheese Day I thought I'd pull out some of my cheese serving techniques. You may have seen these a while back, but cheese talk is never out of style and besides, that expensive cheese you bought needs to be treated well.
- Cheese should be refrigerated in the original wrapping until ready to use. Keep it in an area where it will be less likely to pick up the other odors/flavors floating around in the fridge.
- Once unwrapped, wrap hard or semi-soft cheese in wax paper (it's better than plastic) and if possible store in a sealed plastic container. Use a fresh piece of wax paper each time. Soft-cheeses do not need the wax paper and should be kept in a sealed container.
- Consider double wrapping potent (aka stinky) cheeses so that their odors do not escape.
