Yes, cheese freezes well BUT it MUST be grated first. Grate the cheese and put it in a bag. It will be freeflow naturally. Just open bag and use cheese frozen. Sprinkle frozen on top of dishes or into sauces. Thaws in seconds and no-one would ever guess iot had been frozen.

soft cheeses donot freeze well, like cream cheese get a little watery, some of the blue cheese does not like to be frozen that is already preserved................I would make small packages and freeze it that way.  Pack it for one use and it is easier.  If you grate the cheese you would have to freeze it on a tray and then put it into a bag.  It really depends on what kind of cheese it is.
