How to store cheese
After opening a package of cheese, wrap it in wax paper to store in the fridge. Or, to improve longevity, wrap in Formaticum Cheese Paper, popular with cheesemongers and available in the PCC Deli. The double layer traps humidity but keeps moisture off the surface of the cheese.
Freezing cheese changes its texture, so some cheeses freeze better than others. Hard cheeses such as Parmesan freeze well, especially if you grate them before freezing. Store in an airtight container. Remove from freezer and place in the fridge to thaw several hours before eating.
