This guide details how to properly wrap and store different varieties of cheese. From this moment on, give your precious cheese the care it deserves, whether you're eating Gouda, lactose-free cheese, or the healthiest cheese in your refrigerator.
Hard, aged cheeses (Parmigiano-Reggiano, aged Gouda): First wrap in wax or parchment paper, then add a layer of plastic wrap.
Blue cheeses (Gorgonzola, Roquefort): Wrap in plastic wrap.
Semi-hard and hard cheeses (Cheddar, Swiss, Gruyere): Wrap in plastic wrap.
Soft, semi-soft, and stinky cheeses (goat, Camembert, Brie, Limburger): Place in a resealable plastic container.
Fresh cheeses in water (mozzarella or Feta): Leave the cheese in the original packaging, changing the water every couple of days.
