Cheese: Shropshire Blue

Shropshire Blue

Shropshire Blue

Shropshire Blue is a blue cheese made from pasteurised cows’ milk and uses vegetable rennet. The orange colour comes from the addition of annatto, a natural food colouring. It has been described as a cross between Stilton and Cheshire. The “Blue Veins are made in the same manner as roqueforti cheese.

The cheese has a deep orange-brown, natural rind and matures for a period of 10–12 weeks with a fat content of about 34 per cent. Made in a similar way to Stilton, it is a soft cheese with a sharp, strong flavour and a slightly tangy aroma. It is slightly sour but sharper than Stilton and generally creamier.

I recommend trying a Petite Sirah, Such as Writer’s Block with this cheese, richness of Petite Sirah tends to be balanced with a nice acidity for blue cheeses and these two are a pair in heaven!
