If you’re not planning to eat your cheese right away,
then it’s a good idea to look after your cheese and
store it correctly until you’re ready to eat it!
For most people, storing your cheese in the fridge is the best place for it.
If you have a larder or a cellar, you can store your whole, hard cheeses
there, but any cheese that is soft, blue or cut would fair best in the fridge.
The best place to store your cheese will be the salad compartment, it’s
slightly warmer and more humid compared to the rest of the fridge.
Our cheeses are either wrapped in wax paper or vacuum sealed as
portions, keep the cheese in its original wrapping or wrap in foil if you
aren’t going to eat it all in one go.
It is perfectly natural for cheese to develop mould, they do go hand-in-
hand; if you find that your cheese has some surface mould after
spending some time in the fridge, simply scrape/slice away the surface
mould and enjoy the great taste beneath.
All of our cheeses come with a ‘Use by’ date and batch number
information located on the back of the cheese.
We prefer to send out cheese that is ripe and ready to be eaten, and
the use by date will vary depending on whether it’s a hard or soft cheese.
If you’re new to artisanal cheese, you may be surprised by the
appearance of some of the cheeses. From wrinkly and bloomy rinds, to
vibrant colours and unique textures - these will look magnificently
different to the cheese you’ll find in a supermarket. Here at White Lake
Cheese, we celebrate the unique and wonderful ideas and flavours
explored through artisanal cheesemaking. And while we focus first and
foremost on the flavours of the cheese, we do love the visually captivating
aspect of our cheeses as well.
Nearly all of our cheeses are a perfect addition to any cheese board, with
strikingly beautiful rinds, flavours and textures that will happily stand
alone it’s no wonder why so many of our cheeses hold awards to their
names. You may also have recipe cards placed inside your cheese box
specific to your order, or you may want to visit our website for recipe suggestions too.
