Q: My box arrived, and the delivery person fled because it smells so bad. Is the cheese rotten?
A: No! Cheese in a box for a day or more can start to smell. Here in New York we’ve been known to clear a subway car with a bag of cheese cut 15 minutes ago. Plus, some cheeses just, well, stink. We recommend unpacking it and getting it into the fridge. It will be fine, and your delivery person will be as well.
