Another cheesy post

It's time again for La Fête du Fromage, and this time I have something more exciting than grilled cheese for you. I'm showcasing two fruity cheeses, both of which appeared here previously in my wine & cheese tasting post:





These are both made by Ilchester, and you can see them a bit better here - like I said before, the Stilton with Blueberries is a little firmer and smoother than the Wensleydale with Cranberries, which is a crumbly, sharper cheese. I personally prefer the Stilton, which is sweet and mild and frankly unlike any plain stilton I've tasted, though I used to eat something similar with apricots in Ireland. I think the key is that it's a white stilton, as opposed to a blue. Anyway, both are lovely, especially with wine, but equally on their own.

I love Wensdleydale with cranberries and also love it with apricots. I don't think I have had Stilton with fruit in it yet, gotta try it though!

I love both of these and they make a rather lucious smoked cheese as well.

Sucks that I couldn't make it for this month's La Fete. I'll be gawking at the cheeses from the sidelines this time :(

YUM!!! These both look amazing.
I wonder if I can find something similar here?
Thanks for joining the event. :)

I used to be on the deli counter in Sainsbury's , the apricot cheese was a big seller!

Looks tasty. I tried a stilton with lemon zest one time that was out of this world! Fruit just complements it so well, I think.

I'm usually not a fan of stilton, but i have had a strawberry stilton that was amazing. It was also a white, not blue stilton. I never considered the difference before- great tip!

Very interesting mix of flavours there.
Do they make stilton with plum or dates? They would go great together.
