Smelly Blue Cheese

Recommended Posts

I love it, but need to know which ones I should be trying that I haven’t?

 

For over the next few days I’ve got a small piece of the following.

 

Yorkshire Blue

 

Shropshire Blue

 

Blacksticks Blue

 

blacksticks is my favourite at the mo

Rom is back!!

 

Not sure about stinky but I adore Cote Hill Blue and Bleu d‘Auvergne. Perl Las also. Barkham Blue if you lean toward Stilton.

More importantly, don’t restrict yourself to blues! If you like it stinky, get in amongst the washed rinds. They separate the men from the boys.

Had the Yorkshire Blue at a gastro pub the other week on a cheeseboard. It was lovely and not that tart as some can be. Really nice, as I'm not struck on some blue cheeses.

Some interesting selections. I love blue cheese bit Cashel blue is a favourite of mine, I find Stilton too salty.

Roquefort is usually over salted for me. Love a Danish blue particularly by castello, but at the mo I'm loving the Bavarian blue brie at Tesco cheese counter....

Can't beat a good unpasteurised stilton if you can find em

No restrictions here... I’m a particular fan of Dutch overjarige cheese (over old)

washed rinds, I know nothing about this type of cheese.

Ive always been a cheese lover but it’s only been the last 2 to 3 years I’ve ‘got’ the taste of blue cheese..

Stilton....but leave it for several days until it's soft, creamy & not so tart. Also very tasty at this time of year with port poured into a wee hollow in the middle.

PS Nearly all our cheeses are eaten at just under room temp.

Gorgonzola Piccante. :) Lidl. I suppose Dolce might appeal to some not me though.

 

Other supermarket's offerings can be rather tame.

I was given half a wheel of smoked brie, and just like stinking bishop, once past the rind it is fairly innocuous....

I also like smoke cheese.. A friend of a friend smokes his own Stilton because he can’t buy it. It’s something I need to try...

For smelly non-blue cheese I used to pick up Tomme (cant remember which variety) when I did a wine run to France.

 

Smelled of sewerage but tasted amazing
