9 October – Moldy Cheese Day


Moldy Cheese - Elizabeth Place

Moldy Cheese Day is a unique holiday that is observed each year on October 9.

A cheesemonger is a person who specialises in cheeses, butter, and other dairy products. They may take offense at the common person’s offence to moldy cheese. Depending on the type of mold, of course. Some cheese molds; red or brown tinged molds; for example, are offensive. Toss those bacteria contaminated moldy cheeses in the garbage quickly and move along to the grey, blue or green coloured moldy cheeses in the fridge instead.

Like a sommelier pairs the best wines with meals, a cheesemonger provides expert advice on artisan cheeses for recipes, banquets, and sources for restaurants.

Cheeses such as Roquefort, Brie, bleu, camembert, gorgonzola, and Stilton are a few of the moldy reasons this day is celebrated.
