How to store cheese!

Guide to Storing Cheese:

1. Leave small, whole cheese (such as camembert or burrata) in their original wrappings or containers.

2. For portioned cheese, remove plastic wrap and re-wrap in paper (you will never get a piece of cheese wrapped in plastic from Cornelius Cheesemongers, although we do acknowledge that some cheese shops pre-cut and wrap their cheese in plastic....). Proper deli paper is best (our cheese comes wrapped in cheese paper), but baking paper does the trick too!  

You can purchase cheese paper from us here.

3. Store the wrapped cheese in the fridge, in a container with a loose-fitting lid (if it's airtight the cheese can't breathe). The vegetable crisper is the best place, as it's humid and slightly warmer. 

4. Store stronger-smelling cheese in a seperate container so the smell doesn't taint pther cheese or food in the fridge.

Freezing Cheese

Freezing cheese is not recommended, unless it is a hard or grated, such as cheddar or parmesan. You can , however, freeze baked foods containing cheese, such as lasagne or savoury muffins.
