CHEESE OF THE DAY: BURT'S BLUE
A locally made (Altrincham, Cheshire) blue cheese made in individual batches by independant cheese maker Claire Burt. Its made from milk sourced from a local dairy, and made in a small vat making each cheese "a labour of love". I found it to be a salty, rich blue cheese that was soft around the edges, and in the centre, creamy and slighly crumbly - I liked the fact it was not overly veigned throughout the cheese. A nice piece of cheese that is really tasty with a sharp or fruity jelly (I had it accompanied with some balsamic jelly, but a sweet redcurrent or cranbury jelly would go splendidly with it too. or just gobble the lot as it is! Always good to find a nice locally made cheese, "thanks Claire for your labour of love!"
