Summer Blues

Some people wait until fall to enjoy blue cheeses but there are many that are outstanding right now. 10734 Summer BluesThe Smokey Oregon Blue is one that is perfect for summer picnics as well as just about any other part of the year with just a touch of smoking over hazelnut shells. The inimitable Roquefort, Carles is so sweet and creamy, simply remarkable. The often misunderstood and rare naturally bluing blue from Asturias, Spain – Gamonedo – has a touch of that smoking that comes from the small apple wood fires around which the young cheeses are cured. For another brilliant summer time blue we enjoy the Crater Lake Blue, or for a funkier blue, we recommend the Bleu de Laqueuille, full of the buttery cow notes.

Spread the curd!
