National Moldy Cheese Day

National 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 be outraged by the ordinary person's resentment of moldy cheese. Well, of course, it depends on the type of mold. For example, some cheese molds, red or brown-tinged molds, are injurious. Toss those bacteria-contaminated moldy cheeses in the garbage in a hurry and move on to the grey, blue, or green colored moldy cheeses in the fridge instead.

A cheesemonger gives expert advice on artisan cheeses for recipes, banquets, and restaurant sources. A sommelier pairs the best wines with meals.
