The Rules of Cheese Care Are Simple and Finite
Every Cheese Slut Should Know
It doesn’t take much to keep your cheese feeling fresh and flirty.
Follow these 5 simple rules to store your cheese the right way.
1. Check the date.
2. Slip off that plastic wrap as soon as you get home.
3. Wrap your cheese in specialty paper or parchment paper and a ziplock.
4. Don’t toss your cheese when it gets moldy.
5. Eat it as soon as possible after you buy it.
It’s important to note that not all cheese keeps the same way: ideally, you should eat fresh cheeses within a couple of days and soft-ripened cheeses within a couple of weeks. Firmer cheeses, like cheddar and Gruyère, can keep for several weeks, while drier, harder cheeses like Parmigiano can keep for a month or even longer, especially when stored in larger pieces—just check for mold ever week or so.
