Sam Fujisaka: could you talk about storing cheese? [moved from Home Cooking]

marigolds | Jul 8, 2007 07:56 AM

I've read some old posts of yours where you talk about storing cheese (appropriately wrapped in the appropriate place in the refrigerator) for a super-long time! Could you explain wrapping/temp information for different cheese categories and what to watch out for? (ie, when you toss certain cheeses?)

I keep mine in the "lunchmeat drawer" (not the crispers, the upper drawer,) usually wrapped in plastic wrap b/c it's prone to dry out (mostly hard or semi-hard melting cheeses, along with some soft goat cheeses) and I always have issues with mold. (I assume that's the airtight nature of the plastic wrap?)

TIA!
