Award-winning Bath Blue is a creamy, Stilton-style organic blue cheese from the South West.
How Much Cheese To Buy
We recommend a portion size of 70-120g per person depending on when you are eating the cheese. 70g is ample if you are serving the cheese immediately after a large meal or as part of a buffet. If the cheese is the main part of the meal you will need to allow at least 100g per person and you may prefer to go to 120g if you think your guests will be particularly hungry (or just very fond of cheese!).
However, if you are only a small party, you may find that the pieces look a little small. In this case, choose fewer pieces, or even just one cheese, so that you can present your guests with something that looks more substantial. If you want to provide a wider choice of cheeses, just go for slightly larger pieces and enjoy the leftovers yourself the next day.

Made with organic milk from the cheesemaker's, family-run farm, Bath Blue cheese is produced by following a traditional Stilton recipe. It is creamy, with even blueing throughout.
Nestled in the Mendip Hills, Park Farm has been home to the Padfield Family for four generations. Cheese was made here as far back as 1914. All the cheeses are made on the farm using milk from the family’s organic Friesian herd.
Bath Blue follows a traditional Stilton recipe but unlike the majority of Stiltons, with a few notable exceptions, each stage is done entirely by hand. They are made in very small batches using a vat which is around half the size of even the smallest Stilton maker and then in individual buckets. By making to such a small scale, the cheese-maker has greater control over the alchemy of cheese-making and can maintain the highest quality.
Graham and Hugh were delighted when Bath Blue was voted Supreme Champion at the 2014 World Cheese Awards. More recently it won gold in the 2017 Artisan Cheese Awards too.
*A whole Bath Blue weighs approximately 8kg. Smaller weights are a cut of a whole cheese.
