Speaking of blue, last year when I visited the UK I smuggled home a half-wheel of Stilton. (Talk about extended heaven!) Well, I was in the co-op a couple of days ago, home of one of the most extensive cheese selections in all New England. They had some Stilton. The teeniest little wedge was almost $10! I almost choked.

Do try Saga Blue if you get the chance - it is Brie-ish but with Blue. Lovely, lovely.

H is a blue cheese lover, but he's a bit picky, doesn't like the usual ones. His favourite is Cambozola, followed by Bresse Blue, which of course are like gold dust out here. I'm convinced he does it on purpose just to make sure I check out all the shops. Bougfht some Bavaria blue this week, but it's more like Danish blue. This coming week is a hospital week and there is a shop nearby that has a good range so with luck I'll be able to get something that will pass muster.

Dolcelatte (or your favourite blue) and thick Greek yoghurt, little squeeze of lemon, pinch of salt, grind of black pepper, whizzed to a consistency of your liking, coarse or smooth, in the FP. It couldn't be easier or more gorgeous. Use it as a sauce on the side with anything from steak to hard boiled eggs, or mix things in it to make a salad, like new potatoes or fagioli beans or artichoke hearts. I'm drooling now. Greek yoghurt doesn't mask the flavour like cream does and it's lower in fat.

Glad to hear that I'm not the only person to have eaten blue cheese at breakfast - a nice strong gorgonzola or Torta di Dolcelatte is lurvelly on hot butter toast.

I remember thinking "blue cheese" would actually be blue on the outside when my dad first told me about it (I must have been about 6 or 7 then). When I moved to Spain at 20, I developed quite a taste for it! It's scrummy on toasted ciabatta for brekky...but do brush after!

What about Lime Green Cheese & Whelks?

Grandma, what a little treasure you are, that sounds like a really good idea for supper, or lunch.

Grandma says:
I have a passion for steak and blue cheese myself, but what I usually do is slice the steak, then place it over some mixed salad greens with perhaps a bit of cucumber & or red onion garnish, then douse the whole thing in a blue cheese vinaigrette. Put a generous teaspoon of dijon-style mustard in a container with a lid (so you can shake it), add salt & pepper to taste, about 1/4 cup good wine vinegar and 2-3 times as much good olive oil along with a very generous amount of crumbled blue cheese. Put the lid on and shake like the dickens. It will keep for a week or two in the fridge if you can leave it alone long enough.

Today's treat was White Ciabatta, red Pesto, Rocket, Mozerella, Anchovies, Olives and Tomatoes toasted. Nearly took my fingers off it was so tasty.

My confession - Lunchtime I have taken to having white Ciabatta , with Mustard, Rare Roast Beef, Rocket and Stilton - Toasted. Cost is 4.00 from the staff restaurant.... Yumzer!!

Many thanks Pixie, I shall certainly try that the next time I've got a slab of beef in front of me.

You need a couple of shallots and a nice knob of butter to cook them in so you chop the shallots and cook in the butter in a pan without colouring them. Mix in about 5-6 oz of blue cheese (Roquefort is nice) make a sort of smoothish mush, add about a cup of cream and mix well...heat til nice and hot but don't boil! Add some black pepper and taste.

YEs I do, having steak tonight and usually have a large amount of it crumbled over the top but I'd quit elike to try and make a sauce so I can have a consitant blue cheesey flavor all over.

Anybody able to give me some pointers on what I'd need to do to make a blue cheese sauce?

Muchos Cheesy thanks.
