For the upcoming holiday party you might decide that you're going to bring a cheese platter. Sounds awesome. But, to ensure a spectacular cheese experience, make sure that your cheese is ripe! This goes for soft-ripened cheeses (with the fluffy white rind) like brie and camembert. To measure ripeness, take the wheel of cheese and gently give it a push. If it gives, then it's ripe and if it feels stiff, it's not. Don't worry, cheese that's not ripe is still very delicious, just not as creamy. If you're purchasing a wedge rather than a wheel, you can usually tell if the cheese is ripe if the interior (paste) of the cheese slightly oozes out. Wheels that are cut into wedges do not continue to ripen.
*Be careful! There's such thing as overripeness. If you find that your cheese is overripe,
throw it out!
Signs of an overripe brie or camembert:
-Astringent flavor, slight burn on the tongue
