Can someone tell me whether it's okay to freeze Roquefort cheese? Today I had a windfall at a local market of Roquefort at only $2.99 a pound (usually it's up to $14.99 a pound).I immediately bought a chunk and it's really excellent Roquefort, complete with the official French government stamp. Since this is going to be for my own rather than for commercial use, I won't be using more than a couple of ounces or so at a time. If it can be frozen, however, I will grab a couple of pounds of it before the owner of the market is hauled away by the men in white coats. I have frozen several other types of cheese with no trouble, except that it makes them more crumbly. Since Roquefort is rather crumbly to begin with, this shouldn't be a factor. However, before I attempt it I'd like to hear some feedback from those who have. Many thanks!
