Discover the Richness of Blue Cheese Sauce

Blue cheese sauce is a delectable condiment that adds a burst of flavor to any dish. It’s versatile, allowing you to experiment with different types of blue cheese, such as Stilton or Roquefort. However, be cautious with Roquefort, as its intense taste might surprise you.

Have you ever wondered about the blue cheese varieties available in different countries like the US and Australia? Share your insights in the comments below; I’m curious to know!

Speaking of Stilton, I recently whipped up a mouthwatering Beef, Ale, and Stilton Pie. The combination of flavors was simply divine. It reminded me of the Blue Cheese Burger that Jamie Oliver created. He melted blue cheese over the patty, creating a heavenly experience.

To enhance the taste of your blue cheese sauce, consider adding a splash of Worcestershire sauce for a tangy kick. Depending on your preference, you can use Gorgonzola for a milder flavor or opt for Roquefort if you crave a bolder cheese sauce.

But what exactly is blue cheese? This type of cheese is made with cultures of the mold Penicillium. The mold creates distinctive blue and green spots or veins throughout the cheese, resulting in its characteristic appearance. Some blue cheeses are injected with spores before the curds form, while others have spores mixed in with the curds after they form. Typically, blue cheeses are aged in a temperature-controlled environment, like caves, to develop their unique flavors. The creamy texture of blue cheese is renowned for its pungency.

Now, let’s talk about the recipe. To make blue cheese sauce, you’ll need a few simple ingredients:

  • 25g of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of plain flour
  • 150ml of milk
  • 60g of Stilton or any other blue cheese, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
