Depending on the type of cheese that you have, there are a number of ways you can store your cheese in order to maintain the quality and flavor. First and foremost, we always suggest buying only what you'll use within a week's time. Sure, cheese can last longer, but it does lose its nuance and takes on "fridge funk flavor" the longer it's stored in your fridge. That being said, here are a few suggestions to assist in caring for your cheese:

  • Re-use our cheese paper which is designed to allow the cheese to breath and live for up to a week.
  • Place the cheese in a Tupperware container along with a damp paper towel to keep the humidity high. If you go this route, remember to freshen the air inside every other day to ensure that the cheese can breathe.
  • Wrap cheese in wax paper or aluminum foil (for blue cheese) and loosely wrap in plastic. Make sure that the cheese does not directly touch the plastic as off flavors may seep into the cheese.
