    Uhm. That's weird. If you don't use the refrigerator, you have to buy only a small amount of cheese, otherwise it may become slightly rotten in 1-2 days. Seasoned cheeses might be an exception, yet they still need a temperature around 10°C, which is rather unusual indoors.

    That's interesting. I wonder how many other little differences Americans and Europeans have in food storage and preparation.

    Right. The US is more squeamish about dairy generally. Raw milk cheeses are required by law to be aged over 60 days before being sold.

    Just off the top of my head from personal experience: some Europeans believe that very cold drinks are unhealthy and invite sickness.

    And when cold beer reached west of the Darling, we knew we had arrived.

    My mother bakes brie into phylo dough and serves it with fresh fruit. Now THAT is the best, IMO.

    Also, it's traditional to eat a slice of cheddar cheese on apple pie rather than ice cream.

    British people leave the butter at room temp. It's really best that way.

    French cheeses taste better at room temp.

    I'm thinking that it also has a lot to do with the fact that traditionally French people buy small amounts of fresh food, and Americans buy large quantities of food at supermarkets.
