When cooking with cheese, remember that it is best to add cheese towards the end of the cooking processessince too much exposure to heat can cause the cheese to separate and toughen.
Take into account the amount of cheese lost in the rind. You may have to purchase more for a specific recipe.
It is easier to grate or cube when the cheese is cold. Cheeses that are typically used for grating or cubing for recipeshave higher concentrated flavors so keep that in mind when adding additional seasoning.
