    Parmesan should smell like gym socks.

    You should be fine.

    I don't know - Sartah and I had a masssssive block in our fridge, and we've been using it for a few months. It still tastes fine.

    yeah this was just the powdered stuff in a clear container. it smelt funky (even for parmesan), but i'd already poured it all over my pasta. i guess i'll find out sooner or later.

    it does go bad..however not for a very very long time.. i'm sure you'll be fine.

    The crazy I-talians that I live with put their parmesan in the freezer to keep it fresh. I'm assuming they know a thing or two about parmesan!! ;)

    Parmesan takes a REALLY long time to go bad as it's a hard cheese. Usually it turns orange and hardens or goes mouldy.

    But it IS cheese. You now probably have really good parmesan.

    Maybe it's our feet that smells like the cheese, not the othe way around. Hmmmmmmm, "food" for thought

    If it's the pre shredded stuff, it can go bad.

    If it's a chunk, it can last for a very long time.

    Parmesan cheese that has been grated (like the kind in the container) goes bad!!

    Hope your OK Matt.

    Agreed - My podiatrist goes on and on about how Matt's feet are so clean.

    block doesn't go bad quick

    fresh grated in plastic container -can- go bad but usually only if lid isn't fastened well

    'sawdust' kraft style in the plastic tall can stays pretty much as long as you will use it ... it's hard to get that stuff to go bad ..

    you can leave it out of the fridge for days / weeks [ i have ] and it's still good
