Blend

Combining 2 or more cheeses together results in a new class or family of cheese known as a Blend. In a Blend, the individual characters of each cheese are present, yet they also unite to create something innovative and interesting.

About Blend

Cheese makers can create delightful and delicious Blends by combining their finest cheeses. The result is complex and complimentary flavours, as well as all-in-one convenience. Cheese Blends can elevate the flavour of whatever dishes they get added to.

Keeping Cheese

Storage

Proper storage includes making sure that the wrapping adheres well to the cheese to prevent it from drying out. Keep cheeses on a lower shelf of your refrigerator, far from foods with strong odours, to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells. If you follow these guidelines, your refrigerator’s vegetable drawer will be a good storage spot.

Plastic wrap is the most versatile, accessible and efficient way to preserve cheese freshness. It also provides the tightest seal to protect from moisture, odours and possibly mould in the fridge.
Refrigerator Shelf-life: Will vary depending on texture of cheeses used in Blend.

Freezing

Most cheeses can be frozen, but it is important to keep in mind that freezing can affect texture and character. This is why thawed cheeses are best reserved for use in cooking. Neither the taste nor texture of meals cooked with previously frozen cheeses will be affected.

You can freeze Blend cheeses, in pieces of 500 g or less, for up to two months! Just carefully wrap cheese in plastic wrap and place in an airtight freezer bag. Before using, it is important to allow cheese to thaw slowly in the refrigerator.
