    I received a parcel from Europe with cheese. Unfortunately they sent it via surface. It took 6 weeks over to Canada. The Swiss hard cheese was wrapped in plastic foil. No mold has developed and it smells good. I wonder whether it is safe to eat it?

  • Put simply, if it smells/tastes good, cheese is safe to eat.

    There are even cheeses which smell horrible which are still safe to eat like this guy: Époisses de Bourgogne

  • Possible Duplicate: Can I eat cheese which has been “infected” with blue cheese mold? A while ago I got a chunk of blue cheese and stored it in the fridge. A little later, we bought some cheddar cheese and I stored it in teh same compartment of the fridge as the blue cheese. Now the cheddar cheese has mold on it. I've never seen mold on cheddar cheese appear this quickly, so I'm wondering if having the blue cheese in my fridge actually makes mold appear on my other cheeses more quickly?

The grater is actually raised up on the side you rub the potato on, exactly like I have nutmeg graters. Here are some pictures. Can anyone tell me the name of tis grater? Bonus if you can point me to a website that sells them. Thanks

Can it be cooked rind-on like a potato and served that way?

I am pretty sure that my plate had three drumsticks. Upon noticing the color, my colleague returned the dish to be more thoroughly cooked. I did not return mine, since last week I read the USDA fact sheet on poultry preparation. It says

  • A guilty pleasure of mine is to put a small block of cheddar into a dry frying pan and cook it. The cheese melts and an oil comes out of the cheese. In this state, the oil drains off very easily and is disposed of. The remaining cheese is very crispy when it cools down. Yum! What's left behind when cheese is melted and the oil drained off?
