Cooking with Cheese

Be careful not to overheat cheese

Cheeses will fare better in dishes that require long and slow cooking. Hard cheeses particularly tend to seize up and become tough if they are exposed to too high a temperature.


Add cheese as late as possible

in the cooking process. This will help preserve the delicate flavours.


If you are grating cheese, add it as late as possible

Once you grate a cheese it will begin to lose its flavour. Grate your cheese cold and it will grate more easily.


Be careful when seasoning cheese dishes

Most cheeses contain added salt.


Using fresh cheese when grilling or baking

Goats and ewes milk cheeses work best as they are naturally homogenised and do not curdle as easily as cows milk cheeses.
