  • Product Description

    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 Yorshire through the 1980’s, Swaledale Cheese company is now one of only a handful of dairies in the area.

    1. Splendid on salty crackers with a good glass of red. Absolutely delicious.

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