Keeping this in consideration, how do you serve a whole Stilton?

Simply cut into easy to handle portions, wrap in cling film or foil and freeze for up to 3 months. De-frost slowly – preferably in the fridge overnight. Allow to reach room temperature before serving. Stilton crumbles effortlessly for use in salads, soups and dips.

One may also ask, can you eat the outside of Stilton? Blue Stilton is often eaten with celery or pears. The cheese is traditionally eaten at Christmas. The rind of the cheese forms naturally during the aging process, and is perfectly edible, unlike the rind of some other cheeses, such as Edam or Port Salut.

Similarly one may ask, what goes well with Stilton?

Sweet wines such as Port go well with Stilton, as do fruity chutneys such as mango. As it crumbles easily, Stilton also works well in salads and soups; Paul Foster pairs it with chicory in his wintry Stilton and chicory salad .

What do you serve with vintage port?

These include serving young Vintage Port with fish based dishes such as roasted wrasse and smoked eel, drinking mature Vintages with delicate meat dishes such as braised ox cheek and young venison ribs and offering the 20 and 30 year old Tawnies alongside cod fish or pigeon based dishes.

How do you eat Stilton?

Preparation. Although it works well in cooked dishes such as sauces for steak or pasta, the traditional way to eat Stilton is with port at the end of a meal. If you have a whole Stilton, it is best to cut a round off at a time and then replace the top to prevent the cheese from drying out.

Does Stilton need to be kept in the fridge?

Always keep your Stilton well wrapped in the refrigerator and preferably in an air tight container. This prevents the cheese tainting any other foods in the fridge and also stops it being tainted by them in return. Properly wrapped Stilton will keep perfectly in the fridge for a couple of weeks after opening.

What does Stilton taste like?

Milder than Roquefort or Gorgonzola, Stilton has a rich and mellow flavor with a pungent aftertaste. The finest Stilton is creamy with a subtle, yeasty sweetness and a salty, nutty finish. In fact, the way to judge the quality of your Stilton is by how creamy it is, not by how blue it is.

How do you eat Roquefort cheese?

Roquefort can be paired with fruits, nuts such as almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts, dried fruits, crackers, fresh baguette or mixed with salad topped with walnuts. Roquefort can also be eaten on its own, if you enjoy its complex flavor or with a little touch of honey that creates a salty-sweet combination.

What wine goes best with Stilton cheese?

Similarly most Sauvignon Blancs, dry Rieslings and Italian whites will not clash. However stronger blue cheeses often need specific wine types. Two classic pairings are Sauternes with Roquefort, and Stilton with Port. Typically Stiltons are paired with red Ports, but a softer, creamier Tawny Port is a better option.

Fuzzy gray or black patches of mold or shiny pink or yellow spots of yeast are indications that your blue cheese is past the point of no return. Cheese that is slimy or feels tough and dry has also likely spoiled.

Is Blue Stilton Mouldy cheese?

Blue Stilton was first produced in Britain in 1730 and is named after the village of Stilton where the cheese was first made. Blue mould is encouraged to grow on the cheese deliberately to create a distinctive acidic tang which blends perfectly with the cheese's rich, creamy texture – and it is perfectly safe to eat.
