Make friends with the freezer
More cheese than you can eat? Hard cheeses can be cut into portions, grated or sliced, then wrapped and frozen for up to 6 months. Freezing will make cheese more crumbly so, once thawed, it’s best used for cooking, such as in a rich, creamy risotto. Balance a sweet leek risotto with blue cheese or finish a roasted tomato risotto with plenty of grated hard cheese.
