Shaping of the cheese affects more than presentation, it also influences the texture, moisture content and flavor. Affinage, or ripening, of cheese takes place in a climate controlled room or natural cave. Beneficial molds can be formed on the cheese exterior by exposure to natural airborne molds or by inoculating the cheese with a surface spray or injection of mold (as in Blue Cheese.)
