Is the cheesemaker just that consistent, that good?

Eating Montgomery's in your honor tonight. tounge.gif
Along with red leicester and stichelton.

Left: Toma Maccagno. The stink of Old Hob himslef but great meaty, svaory, buttery paste.
Right: Gorgonzola Piccante (Milan), creamy but more bite than most.
Center: Cremont (cow and goat, Vermont Creamery) Much like a typical fresh goat cheese but more funky nose and flavor.

Drop the Stilton and eat Stichelton (IMO)

I'd like to try it. Can't find it anywhere.

It's very good. Wherever tehy sell Neal's Yard stuff they should have it once in awhile. It is a really low production cheese. Even Cowgirl only gets it a few time a year. The other blue they do starting with an S (Strathburn or something) is good as well. Strong.

I really hope some day I will enjoy blue cheese. I don't enjoy red smear that much either. I will get some Stichelton next time I visit Käse Thiele (IIRC like 450 cheeses, one of the best selections in Hamburg/northern Germany).

It does get hard to find here in the Winter post milking season. Zingerman's says they still have it online. Best bet is to call Artisanal or Murrays and ask when it will come around again.

I know you can get Shropshire Blue now at Artisanal... but that's an altogether different beast.


If you ever spot Cabrales, grab a small amount to try. It'll sear your tongue but it grows on you.. Hell, at the right temp it'll grow on anything.

It's certainly a learned taste, especially depending on how your palate reacts to the acidity.

A good way to ease in is to 1) choose a fattier, creamier blue, 2) serve with a tiny bit of light honey (very light/white... floral) and pair with a sparkling dessert white (muscat/moscato etc) ... or Port with some blues.

See what they have in true Piemonte Gorgonzola like "Gorgonzola Cremificato" - mild, less peppery.

I can get Shropshire pretty regularly. It's one of my favorite blues. I'll ask about the Stichelton next time I'm at the cheese shop. I'm always wanting to try different blues, but I usually only see Stilton, Fourme D'Ambert, and Bleu d'Auvergne.
