Cheese And Butter Questions And Answers

Q: How long does cheese last in the fridge?
A: Cheese mongers advise to store fresh, soft cheeses in the fridge for about a week, maybe two if the cheese looks and smells fine, and most hard cheeses for 3–4 week, sometimes even four to six months if you store them correctly.

Q: How long can cheese sit out?
A: The general guideline is that you should only keep cheese out about 2 to 4 hours.

Q: What is the healthiest cheese?
A: Cheese is a great source of many nutritional powerhouses like calcium, protein, vitamins B and D, and healthy fats. However, some types of cheese can be high in sodium and calories. There’s no consensus at what (if any) cheese is the healthiest cheese, but health experts generally agree on these: ricotta and cottage cheese, fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, and light Swiss cheeses. Learn about Cheese Nutrition.

Q: How many types of cheese are there?
A: Cheese comes in a wide assortment of types – the international Dairy Federation recognizes about 51 varieties! Generally though, it can be broken down into a few main types of cheese: fresh and curd cheeses, stretched curd, cooked and pressed, soft, semi-soft, medium-hard, semi-hard, hard cheese, mold cheeses – including soft and smear ripened, washed rind, and blue, granular cheeses, brined, and processed cheeses. Learn more about Types of Cheese

Q: How is cheese made?
A: Cheese is made by making milk curd intentionally using a starter culture. The milk then separates into curds and whey, the latter which is drained and pressed away using the famous ‘cheesecloth’. The curds are what make the cheese! Because there are so many different types of cheese, methods can vary immensely – the curds can be seasoned, pressed into shape, brushed with olive oil, the options are endless. Fresh cheeses are ready after pressing, while aged cheeses are left to sit and age for days, weeks, months, or even years!
