Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Bleu d’Auvergne has been made the same way in the Auvergne region in south-central France since the nineteenth century. France is so protective of their precious Bleu d’Auvergne that it is one of the few cheeses that have been name protected. This means only cheese from the Auvergne region can be called Auvergne cheese. 

Auvergne is a cow’s milk cheese, filled with bright blue veins and wrapped in a sticky yellow rind. It tastes of tangy herbs and spices with mellow grassy notes along the way. Use Auvergne instead of your usual blue cheese to give an old recipe a new life; crumble it on top of your favorite salad, or melt it down into a cream sauce for a big juicy steak.  If you’re feeling low maintenance, spread a chunk of Auvergne on some crusty Italian bread and pour yourself a dessert wine, like a nice glass of Sauternes.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
