Quote from the Cheesemonger:

Our suggestion for this one is a nice rare steak. Makes an indulgent blue cheese sauce.

Creamy, soft and tangy – Swaledale Blue takes the classic Swaledale cheese to a whole new level. Swaledale blue is a local delight, providing a full flavoured all round blue cheese that doesn’t burn the palate but imparts a peppery flavour, giving it a stronger flavour than some of the more common blue’s around.

Cheese making in North Yorkshire is thought to have originated in the 11th Century when Cistercian monks settled in local abbeys, bringing with them their French cheese recipes. On passing their knowledge to local farmers, Swaledale cheese was created. Following the decline of cheese production in North Yorkshire through the 1980’s, Swaledale Cheese company is now one of only a handful of dairies in the area.

Flavour Profile

You’ll be getting a light and zesty Dale cheese who’s firmer and more natural rind adds to the flavour. There will be hints of earthy notes with a crumbly and creamy texture, enriched with a smooth nutty flavour.

Drink Pairing

A nice red! Our Bolney Lychgate Red matches this yorkshire blue sublimely.

About the Maker

Swaledale Cheese Company started in 1980 when the Longstaff family passed on the original Swaledale cheese processes! The Longstaff family farm were the last to be producing cheese in the area and Swaledale area and when the time came for Mrs Marjorie Longstaff to stop making cheese the Swaledale Cheese Company kept the Swaledale cheese dream alive.

How to Enjoy

Our suggestion for this one is a nice rare steak. Makes an indulgent blue cheese sauce.
