It is best to leave your cheese out 30-60 minutes prior to serving for optimal flavor and texture.
Keep the cheese in the refrigerator in its original packaging until ready to enjoy. After opening, re-wrap in its original wrapping, cheese paper or wax paper. Read more.
Please refer to the “Best By” date marked on each piece of cheese when determining when to eat your cheese and if it is still good. For a milder flavor, enjoy well before the date. If you enjoy a riper, more flavorful cheese, wait until it gets closer to its “Best By” date. It can still be enjoyed a little past this date for those who enjoy stronger flavors. Read more here.
We do not recommend freezing the cheese. Cheese is a living product with cultures that continue to ripen during its shelf life. Freezing the cheese kills the cultures, causing taste and texture to change. Check the shelf life before buying cheese to know how long you can keep it to avoid freezing.
