Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes


Chaource cheese receives its name from the small town in France where it has been made for centuries. This cow’s milk cheese is a double cream, but is often mistaken for a triple cream due to its rich texture. A double cream cheese has extra cream added to the cheese making process for a richer texture; a triple cream cheese has even more cream added.

It is comparable to a Brie of Camembert but it is much creamier, especially when it is aged. When you bite into a wedge of Chaource cheese, you’ll first notice a mushroomy, earthy scent followed up by a rich creamy flavor. If you are planning to serve champagne, this is an excellent addition to the cheese platter, as the bubbly acidity of your drink will cut the rich flavor of the Chaource. Usually, Chaource is sold in small, eight ounce wheels, giving the cheese an elegant appearance.

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.
