    Can you freeze cheese?
    Can you freeze cheese?

    It’s possible to freeze cooked pressed cheeses but we always recommend eating cheeses fresh. Freezing cheese will change its flavour and texture – it may be crumblier and drier when thawed. You should definitely avoid freezing bloomy rind and washed rind cheeses.

    Can you eat the rind?

    It depends on the type of cheese. You can eat most rinds like those on washed and bloomy rind cheeses. If the cheese has a wax rind on it, you cannot eat it. Hard aged cheeses that have a natural rind can be used to add flavor to soups, sauces or even making your own infused flavored oils.

    How do I know if I’m going to like the cheese?

    At Sobeys we encourage you to “try before you buy.” If you are ever unsure or want to taste something different, feel free to ask for a sample. We want to help you discover something new and make sure that the cheese you’re bringing home is one that you’re going to love.

    Jessica, Glen Abbey Sobeys Cheese Ambassador

    What cheeses are best for melting?

    The most popular cheeses for melting tend to be from the pasta filata category such as Provolone and Mozzarella, or from the uncooked pressed cheese category such as Havarti, Gouda, and Fontina. For something different, try melting Brie, Oka, Asiago, Gruyere, Swiss, or Canadian Cheddars.

    How can a Cheese Ambassador help me shop for cheese?

    Cheese Ambassadors are here to help you learn about and experience new cheeses. We help you find the perfect cheese for a tantalizing dish or a wine or beer that you enjoy. We can assist you with a cheese that suits any dietary restrictions.
