Blue veined cheese is a semi–hard cheese, famous for its bold and quite distinctive aroma. What makes Blue cheese blue? Blue mould spores are added to the cheese milk to give the blue cheese its unique flavour, texture and colour. These moulds need to “breathe”, so the cheese is pierced to let oxygen in and carbon dioxide out. Blue cheese is matured for about three months before it is ready to be enjoyed.
