Canadian Tomme is a cheese that showcases the knowledge of our cheese makers, and as a result, will be greatly appreciated by connoisseurs and beginners alike. Among its many attractions are a soft, supple texture and complex, buttery flavour.
Tomme cheese should keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
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.
To preserve the freshness of washed-rind cheeses, use breathable wrap like waxed paper to allow oxygen to work with the bacteria.
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 Tomme, like most Semi-soft 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.
