CHEESE OF THE DAY: MONTAGNOLO AFFINE
What??? a cheese from supermarket giant Tesco??? Yes yes yes - like most people I love buying cheese fresh from the counter of my local cheese shop or independent deli, but necessity sometimes rules the day and there are actually plenty of cracking cheeses in the finest or taste the difference ranges in major supermarkets these days.
This particular cheese was a lovely creamy, salty cheese and was not overly strong in the blue tang. A pleasant eat on its own, but I found it even better as the base for a blue cheese sauce - it just melted down into a cheesegasmic pourable sauce that tasted bloomin marvellous - thank you Tesco!!!
