Barkham Blue Tasting Notes
Barkham Blue is the ideal blue cheese for anyone who usually avoids blue.
This blue is extremely creamy due its rich milk and is relatively milder and mellower compared to many blues that usually leave harsh metallic aftertaste.
This results in a rich and satisfying cheese tasting experience for many people.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
Sweet dark fruit wine like Paxton Vintage Port goes incredibly well with the creamy and gently spiced Barkham Blue. Pairing sweet white wine and dessert wine are also excellent choices.
Many cheese connoisseurs in the United Kingdom prefer to eat this cheese on its own, in a soup or on a salad with Conference pears and mixed leaves.
For us, we love to eat this entry blue with tomato ciabatta (click here for recipe) or with vegetable stew (see below) for a quick and easy snack.
