More about this
This blue cheese selection box includes:
Beenleigh Blue. Pasteurised sheep’s milk, vegetarian. 210g.
Originally based on a Roquefort recipe, Beenleigh Blue cheese turned out sweeter and milder. Beenleigh Blue has a delicate sweetness with a minerally, floral flavour.
Cote Hill Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 290g.
With the price of wholesale milk falling, the Davenports took a short course in cheese making and invented Britain’s first unpasteurised soft blue: Cote Hill Blue.
Bleu des Causses. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g. Aged in natural caves in the Causses plateau and modelled on Roquefort this cheese has an assertive rich flavour that melts on the palate. The Courtyard Dairy ages this Bleu des Causses a bit longer than normal to produce a richer flavour.
Young Buck Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Outstanding raw-milk, blue cheese from Northern Ireland. An interesting take on a Stilton recipe, Young Buck cheese is traditionally-made and hand-ladled to produce a rich, lingering flavour. An impressive debut cheese.
