Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Chimay Trappistee cheese is a cow’s milk cheese from Belgium, whose creation is steeped in tradition and careful procedure. The cheese is made in a Cistercian Abbey by Trappist monks who make the cheese and then bathe it in the Chimay beer which they also make at the Abbey. Biting into this cheese is an interesting flavor experience, the semi-soft paste has a nutty flavor profile, but after a moment, you can really taste the hops and malt that the wheels were soaked in.

If you want to cook with this cheese, think about the flavors that compliment both the cheesy goodness and the malted taste. A grilled Chimay Trappiste cheese sandwich with ham and caramelized onions on crusty bread is a combo that can not go wrong.

For a pairing, don’t over think it and keep it casual. Try it with a bottle of stein, of its own marinade.

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.
