Stilton cheese is best with mould, not gold
Anyone wondering how that golden stilton from Long Clawson tastes? Here's a review from Iain Hollingshead, at the Telegraph. The conclusion? Less thank thrilled:
Imagine you’re the first but least favourite wife of an oil-rich Sheikh. You’d like to surprise him with a quaint Christmas present, but what do you get the man who has everything?

It had already had a good year, winning several International Cheese awards.
