About Semi-soft

Semi-soft cheeses offer the widest range of cheeses that vary according to production process, as well as the ripening method and duration. Considered to be the balance between Soft and Hard cheeses, they can vary in taste from mild to pronounced, and are indispensable whether served on a cheese tray or used in the kitchen.

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. With washed-rind cheeses, use breathable wrap like waxed paper to allow oxygen to work with the bacteria.
Refrigerator Shelf-life: 2-3 weeks.

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 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.
