When we go shopping at Cowgirl Creamery, Rainbow Grocery, or Bi-Rite and pick up several wedges of fromage goodness, we like to make sure they stay fresh. This wooden cheese safe from Cowgirl Creamery does the trick.

Cheese is like a bottle of wine. A bottle of wine needs to be stored in the right environment so it keeps aging, which improves its flavors. Cheese needs the same care and attention as wine as like wine, cheese is a live product. It needs to breathe and it needs to be stored in the right environment.

This 9.5 x 9.5 x 4.5″ wooden box meets the requirements. It fits perfectly in our refrigerator and has a convenient sliding lid. The wood absorbs moisture away from the rind and keeps the moisture inside the cheese even. As a result, cheeses kept in the cheese safe have a dry rind and a soft, moist interior and continue to ripen, thus improving their flavor and texture.
