Young Buck Blue Cheese
Young Buck is an interesting take on an ancient blue cheese recipe. It comes from Northern Ireland and is a raw-milk, new and simply impressive blue cheese, hand-ladled and traditionally produced creating a rich and lingering flavour.
Like most Stiltons, Young Buck has a lingering taste of saltiness but stands apart with its characteristic knobbly crust and central smooth creamy, blue-veined paste which becomes chalkier and slightly crumbly towards the edges.
This cheese is astringent, it has a nice strong acidity and a top of the palate flavour! It is crumbly with a sticky rind.
Pairs wonderfully with Port or a spicy Shiraz such as Don’t Tell Gary and some delicious fig chutney.
About the producer
The genius behind this exceptional cheese is Michael Thomson, one of the world’s new-generation cheesemakers. After studying artisan food he returned home to Northern Ireland and following some investments from his friends he was able to set up Mike’s Fancy Cheese Co. and created this wonderful cheese.
How to enjoy
The cheese is a pleaser! Like most blues, it works very well in a salad with pears and walnuts, and it teams agreeably with a fruity accompaniment such as Sheridans Fig Compote or a slice of quince cheese.
