Here are 7 key rules that every dedicated cheese lover should live by.
Don’t freeze fresh cheese
After just one day, fresh cheese will lose start to lose its moisture
Use a different utensil for each cheese
When serving cheese have a utensil for each type of cheese. You don’t want your Brie to taste like Saint Agur do you?
Don’t put unwrapped cheese in the fridge
This is easy. IF you leave cheese unwrapped it will dry out, harden and become uneatable.
Try not to wrap cheese in cling film
Although this is a widely accepted method, try using cheese paper or parchment paper. These papers allow the cheese to breathe better so it won’t drop out.
Don’t serve cheese straight out of the fridge
Serving cheese cold ruins the flavors, aromas and textures. Cheese should be pulled out of the fridge an hour before serving to achieve the best possible cheese experience.
Keep the cheese a wedge for as long as possible
When serving a cheese board keep the cheese in a wedge for as possible, don’t pre-slice. This will keep cheese from drying out. Also, the flavor of the cheese is best at the center, so let everyone experience this by keeping it in a wedge.
