I’m going on vacation soon, and my fridge is full of uneaten cheese. Is it okay to freeze it?
Please don’t freeze it! Freezing cheese destroys texture and thus affects the flavor, mouthfeel, and, ultimately, the sensual pleasure of eating cheese. This is true for soft cheeses as well as for hard cheeses. Cheese should be enjoyed within the time frame that the cheesemaker determines best for tasting, enjoying, and getting the full artisan food experience. Your local cheesemonger or cheese counter can answer any questions about this.
