BLUE CHEESE Judged by chef RaymondBlanc WINNER Shepherds Purse, Harrogate Blue “This really was a standout cheese fromall the entries that were entered. Beautifully creamy with a wonderful balance of saltiness, savoury notes and a slight sharp finish. The golden colour of the cheese almost makes it seemcreamier and buttery with its rich orange glow. This is a new favourite of everyone who tried it.” HIGHLY COMMENDED Cropwell BishopCreamery, Beauvale “Beauvale really was an interesting cheese to taste. A real mix of great qualities of a blue stilton, sharpness from the blue veins and a rich aged creaminess, combinedwith themelting qualities of a great brie demeaux. This is a perfect cheese for anyone who is put off by the intensity of a strong blue cheese; truly a joy to eat and verymoreish.” HIGHLY COMMENDED Sussex HighWealdDairy Ltd, Brighton Blue “The Brighton Blue has a slightly softer texture thanmost blue cheeses and has a lovely balance of sharpness from the blue veins, a wonderful creaminess and slight salty finish. There’s amild bitterness coming from the rind, whichmakes for more interest with this delicious blue cheese.” CHEESE & DAIRY 38
