Scheese/gouda ideas

Sidecar recently started carrying Scheese, a Scottish vegan cheese line that's apparently rather hard to get in the US. Despite the fact that it's obscenely expensive, I bought some--gouda style, since I haven't seen that offered by any other company and it was a favorite before I went vegan.

Because it's so expensive, I plan on hosting a little cheese-tasting event for vegan friends who might want to try it. I would use this cheese and also do something with one or more kinds of Follow Your Heart.

First question: How long will this stuff keep once it's open? FYH mozzarella goes bad if you blink before using up the package, so I want to know what I'm in for with this. If it keeps at least a few days, I'll probably try a little bit hot and cold to get a better idea of what I want to make, but I don't want the package to go bad before I have a chance to serve it to anyone else.

Second question: What tasty appetizers (hot and/or cold) would be best to showcase a gouda-style cheese?

And finally, What tasty appetizers (hot and/or cold) would be best to showcase mozzarella and/or jack-style cheeses?

I'll be sure to post results--and reviews!--afterwards for those who have access to buy the stuff.
