“Many’s the long night I’ve dreamed of cheese.” - Robert Louis Stevenson

Serve ripened cheeses at room temperature because cold can mask their flavours. To temper cheese, remove it from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes before serving, depending on the hardness of the cheese. Leave the cheese in a fresh, well-ventilated area and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
