Danish Blue Cheese $30.49/kg
Most cheeses sold in $5 - $10 portions
Danish Blue Cheese is made using cow’s milk and displays fine streaks of blue veins along its white interior. Resembling Danish royal porcelain, it enchants with tones of mild bitterness and salt. The flavors are pungent and sharp, with a creamy and smooth texture on par with many soft cheeses.
Adopting traditional French recipes for making blue mold cheese, dairy farmers on the island of Funen in Denmark replaced goat’s milk with cow’s milk to better fit the profile of a creamy and rich consistency. Traditional Danish Blue is milder than the likes of Roquefort and is favored for being better suited to sensitive palates.
Pair Danish Blue with seared beef, veal or pork steak, allowing it to melt in, or serve it in soups, pastas or stews for an extraordinarily creamy consistency. Enjoyed cold, zesty apple, dark chocolate and pear stand in great contrast and complement the flavors beautifully by subduing the sharper tones of the cheese – a great way of introducing skeptic audiences to blue cheese.
