A New Blue from Point Reyes
It's no secret -- Madame Fromage is a big fan of blues. Lo and behold, one of her good friends is affectionately dubbed "The Blue Cheese Brit," and he recently had a birthday. Naturally, blue cheese was on the menu, but not just any blue -- Bay Blue from Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese.
Point Reyes Bay Blue fits the Stilton profile because it is more sweet than salty. The taste calls to mind brown butter, caramel, husked walnuts. When you eat it, you want to put on corduroy slippers and smoke a Viceroy. It’s a California Stilton, though, let’s keep that in mind — so it’s more beachy and less library-rific.
