Blue Stilton comes from the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire regions of England and is the only name protected cheese from this country. It is made from pasteurized cow’s milk and is aged for a minimum of six months. Stilton has a rough, brownish rind that gives way to an ivory colored interior with liberal blue veining. Blue Stilton has a pronounced full, rich cheesy flavor with a moist firm yet crumbly texture. The aroma is huge and spicy. Stilton is great with robust red wines and excellent with sherry and port. Serve it as a table cheese with dried apricots and walnuts.
