How and where to preserve the Fontina
You can preserve the Fontina in the cellar or in the fridge.
In the cellar place the cheese in a damp room, preferably on a wooden shelf, with a temperature not exceeding 10-12°C. Every so often rub the cheese with a damp, salted cloth to remove the normal white mould on the rind. Should the cellar be too dry, wrap the cheese in a damp cloth.
In the fridge wrap the slice in cling film and place in the cool store of the fridge, where you generally keep vegetables.
