Blue Cooking Cheese (500g)

Our slightly less than perfect blue

In our determination to minimise the environmental impact of everything we do, we decided to trust nature rather than technology in maintaining a cheese-friendly stable-ish temperature in our cheese maturing room.  The reason we did this is that the beautifully thick old stone walls in the building should create a cave-like atmosphere.  It works really well… most of the time. 

Now and again we have batches of cheese that simply aren't up to the standard we want.

So while the look and texture of the cheese isn't right, the flavour can still be good, which means it's ideal for blue cheese on toast, sauces or for flavouring tarts or quiches.

When we have Blue Cooking Cheese available it will be either Fleet Valley Blue, which is made with unpasteurised milk, or Barlocco Blue, which is made with pasteurised milk. Our blue cheese is best enjoyed within 4 weeks.

Your cheese order will be delivered in Woolcool packaging, a system of eco-friendly insulated packaging made from sheep’s wool. This packaging keeps our cheeses below  5oC  for 48 hours so that they reach you perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy. Cheeses are sent using a next day delivery courier service, however occasionally delivery can be delayed. This is happening more frequently during the coronavirus crisis and so we cannot guarantee delivery on your requested date. Please be reassured that our insulated packaging and chill packs have been designed to accommodate at least a 48 hour delivery window. Therefore, if you receive your cheese a day later than expected, the cheese will be absolutely fine. The Sorba-freeze ice packs we use are reusable, they can be dehydrated (on a radiator) and rehydrated with water and refrozen.
