Depends on the cheese and the conditions of the room. I guess many modern rooms would do cheese no good at all, but an old fashioned cool larder would be fine. Down a mineshapft is good apparently!

In the fridge inside a Tefal Cheese Safe - available from Lakeland.

They are fantastic - no more sweaty cheese and even very ripe cheese will not smell your fridge out if it's inside.

You should always eat your cheese at room temperature though - which can take a bit of planning.

It should be hung on a hook above a bowl.

When it goes gooey enough to fall off the hook and into the bowl it is about a day or two from being ready- I like my cheese served by the spoonful not the slice :)

Since when does Cheddar, Wensleydale or Lancashire do that young man. You appear to be talking about wierd foreign cheese.

Boring cheese stays solid for more than a day- proper interesting cheese goes liquid, or at least crumbly/creamy :)

Don't start on methods of black pudding preparsation...;)

I s'pose you could always take it out of the fridge again rather than climb in there to enjoy the cheesy goodness :)

I think it depends on the cheese.

Crumbly cheeses dont do too well if they get too warm; they get sweaty and rubbery. Blue cheeses and soft cheeses should be room temperature.

Is it just me or does the word cheese look wrong when you've typed it a few times?
