Long-Haul Travel with Cheese

misswills | Dec 11, 2007 03:15 PM

Hi Chowhounds,

I'm taking a long-haul flight from London to California in a few days. I'd like to bring back some English cheeses to share with friends and family. In particular, I'm thinking about bringing home some stilton and cheddar. I've carried on food before, but not cheeses, so I'm a bit nervous about how I'm going to do this.

Any suggestions on how to keep cheese nice and fresh on an 11 hour flight + transit time without the use of 'technology'? (e.g. no dry ice, ice packs, etc). Bonus points for suggestions on how to keep the cheese in a presentable state (I plan on bringing the cheese back to share at gatherings over Christmas).

Thanks in advance for the help!
