Create a deeper, more enriched dish with the Tuxford and Tebbutt 5 oz. DOP blue stilton cheese wedge! As one of the six dairies in the world that is certified to use the Blue Stilton name, Tuxford and Tebbutt delivers the high-quality standards that come from making a true blue cheese. This particular Stilton is robustly earthy with uniquely sparkling minerality, only to be perfectly balanced out with slightly sweet, syrupy undertones. A thick, rough, biscuity rind protects the deeply creamy, crumbly, and almost spoonable honey-yellow paste with tunnels of blue veins streaked throughout. The competing flavors and uniquely, naturally designed paste create the desirable, complex cheese that is protected by English legislation since 1966.
Often described as the "aristocrat of cheeses", "King of English cheese", and "Royal Blue", Stilton originates from the quaint town of Nottingham, England, one of the three towns in the world that is allowed to produce certified Stilton cheese. Their highly regarded Stilton is perfect when served at room temperature and served with a glass of port, darker fruits, and a drizzle of amber-colored honey. To indulge in the savory flavors of this Stilton, carve a few slices and toss in with a batch of roasted brussel sprouts and honey, bake into a butternut squash quiche, or simply top off a medium-rare steak with a dollop of this piquant cheese.
