Left my refrigerated fresh pecorino romano cheese, out all night. Hate to toss it. Is it still good?

Considering the many shakers of grated hard cheese that reside on the tables of pizzerias seemingly everywhere I'd have to guess no problem. What I usually do with hard cheeses is wrap them with a paper towel dampened with white vinegar and then plastic wrap to prevent mold growth before storing in the fridge.

It's fine. Pecorino Romano is a hard cheese. It doesn't go bad quickly; quite the opposite.

Those shakers of dry powdered parmesan are mostly wood pulp not cheese. Not the same thing as an actual block of fresh cheese

The cheese is fine. It became cheese while sitting in temperatures around 60 degrees for 6 months to a couple of years. Being left out of the refrigerator overnight is not going to do it any harm. It's fine.

Consider making a buffet that includes fried-cheese!

I would not eat it without first cooking it.

Did you even READ the article that you posted? No, most shakers of cheese are NOT "mostly wood pulp." Yes, according to that article, a few companies -- like Castle Cheese -- defrauded consumers and are now paying for it (as they should be). And yes, according to that same article, some "cheese" products have some cellulose (which is made from wood pulp) -- but those were <10% not real cheese (so 90% or more cheese). Not exactly "mostly wood pulp," as you claimed.

Yes, these problem companies are being deceitful, and that's bad enough -- so why did you feel the need to exaggerate so much?

Your own link belies your statement calling these products "mostly wood pulp not cheese."
