Soft cheeses are known for their lush texture, smooth and creamy flavour, and interiors that are not pressed nor cooked. They can either have a bloomy or washed rind, depending on the production process.
Soft cheeses are at their best when they emit an aroma of mushrooms and the rind gives when pressed slightly under your finger. A very strong smell or an ammonia-like odour is a sign that the cheese is overripe.
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 cheese freshness, use the original wrapping or rewrap in plastic wrap to provide 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: 1 week.
Freezing is not recommended for Soft cheeses.
