Monthly Recap: January 2024

Posted by Emilia D'Albero on

As we wind down from the excitement of the winter holidays, we know that it's important to take some time to relax, recharge, and recover. If your New Year's resolution was to learn something new, we've got good news for you - we put together a concise list of the topics we've covered on the blog and social media this month. From cheese storage tips to proper knife care to serving suggestions, we've covered a wide range of topics. So take the next few minutes, grab a cozy blanket and a cup of tea, and read on to find out what the Formaticum team has been up to this month.   

Right after New Year's Day, we got to work tackling the age-old question: how long will my cheese last in the fridge? The answer is….it's complicated. Cheese is a gastronomic miracle, but it's not immortal! There are many factors that contribute to a cheese's shelf life. Read this post and watch our short video below to learn more about how to properly wrap and store your cheese in a way that preserves the flavor and texture. 

We wanted to keep the cozy vibes going even after the holidays, so we hosted a Raclette night to provide you with tried and true serving and pairing suggestions for everyone's favorite hot, melty cheese. Read this post to learn more about the history of this iconic cheese and how to choose a selection of different types of Raclette that will please everyone in your group. 

Wires and hollow knives and offset blades, oh my! The choices for cheese tools can seem endless, but we're here to guide you. Read this post to learn how to perfectly pair different knives and tools with different styles of cheese. The below video includes tutorials on how to use each of our knives and other cheese tools to get the perfect cut, every time!

You "cheddar" believe we finished the month out with an in-depth discussion about one of America's favorite cheeses. With the variety of cheddars available on the market being almost as vast as the number of cows who produce the milk to make them, it's important to select the cheese that is right for your specific needs. In this blog post, we discuss how to talk to your cheesemonger to not only walk away with the perfect cheese, but also how to develop your palette and learn more about your personal flavor preferences!
