Stilton and Other Blue Cheeses
Stilton is the King of blues; crusted, powerful and rich. This cheese royalty is the cornerstone of many a Christmas cheeseboard. Gentle hand-ladling of the curds is the key to developing a creamy consistency and the Colston Bassett and Cropwell Bishop dairies are masters of the art.
The newer kids on the block at Stichelton Dairy and Bath Soft Cheese Company make fabulous blue cheeses which are every bit as worthy of a place on the board.
Roquefort is the "roi" of French cheese, and Roquefort Carles is the pinnacle of quality: spicy, rich and melt-in-the-mouth.
