These Videos Show The Best Way To Wrap Cheese

Wrap your cheese properly and you can keep it fresh for much longer than if you just kept it in plastic wrap (which isn't a good idea). Cheese paper company Formaticum's videos show us how to wrap cheeses of different shapes. Obviously, they use their cheese storage paper for the demonstrations, but you can do the same with baking paper and then cover it in plastic wrap.

The technique is basically the same for all the shapes: You'll draw two ends of the paper together and then fold down several times until you reach the top of the cheese. Then you only have to deal with the sides of the paper, which you fold over the sides of the cheese to make the paper conform to its shape, and then fold the sides under.

In case you want to watch all the other cheese-wrapping videos, here you go:

    I didnt know there was so many cheese wrapping methods.
    I generally just chuck it in a zip lock bag, why's that a bad idea?

      That basically gives an oxygen supply for the mold and bacteria to grow resulting in the cheese expiring faster.
