It’s Moldy Cheese Day—yes, it’s an officially declared food holiday—so it’s time for a little mold education. If a blue mold develops on your cheese, that’s good and natural (think blue cheese). You can eat it; or if you aren’t into blue, scrape it off and enjoy the rest of the cheese. Red or black mold, however, indicates a cheese that’s past its prime. Cut it away. The rest of the cheese is still fine, though.
Celebrate Moldy Cheese Day with some delicious blue cheese: in an omelet, in your salad (crumbled into the salad or into the dressing), on your burger or steak, on a sandwich, or for dessert with a glass of sweet dessert wine.
