Few ingredients deliver as much impact as a piece of Blue cheese.
Because of its unique mold and make, Blue cheese carries a full spectrum of flavors—salty, creamy, umami, tangy, and earthy—that cooks can employ all at once in a range of dishes.
Or it can be just served on its own, for maximum impact.
“Most blue cheeses are normally wrapped in foil to prevent them from drying out. This causes the moisture pumped out by the bacteria during fermentation to gather on the rind. Scrape this off before serving.”
