Blacksticks - A rather tasty cheese

I’v recently discovered something rather special in the cheese world. It is called “Blacksticks Blue”. Originating in Lancashire, it is a truly fantastic example of a traditional English soft blue cheese. It is similar in flavour to a well matured Shropshire blue, but is considerably creamer and has a softer more melt in the mouth texture.

The cheese has only been around for a couple of years, but has already scoped up a huge number of awards. If you see it about, treat yourself, you wont be disappointed. I think it is best eaten in large quantities and preferably with a class of port. However, it also works well in a sandwich with a bit of cranberry source.
