Wrapping your cheese
If you’re a cheese snob, then you know that this dairy product can be quite the expense. Allegedly, the most expensive cheese in the world fetches $600 per kilogram. Maybe you don’t dabble in that variety, but you know the good stuff is pricey, so having it go bad before you eat it is a true waste. In order to keep hard cheese in good condition, double wrap it: first with parchment paper, then with foil to let the cheese breathe without losing all moisture. To keep soft cheeses with a hard rind like brie or Coulommiers fresh, add them to a glass container lined with paper towels with the lid left slightly off to allow them to breathe.
