A Brittish Pride
My alltime favorite blue cheese is Stilton. You can eat it with crackers or put it in sallads, soups, as topping, etc. It is a Brittish cheese that can only be produced by six approved dairies in the three counties of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, in order to bear the name Stilton.
It is a blue veined, semi soft, crumbly cheese made from pateurized cow's milk. It has a really nice creamy feeling in your mouth with a rich, full flavor, although not to sharp.
Try it with a glass of port and I'll think you'll have a new favorite as well.
