The Flavor Experience
This rich, fudgy blue can at times be somewhat granular bringing to mind handmade fudge or packed brown sugar. Like Stilton, Bay Blue develops a natural rind and complex flavors that swing between sweet and savory.
This blue may be a relative newcomer to the American artisan cheese scene but it has already made quite a splash. The recipe for Bay Blue took years to develop and was extensively tested throughout its conception. The result is a new classic that will stop you in your tracks.
Like Stilton you could pair Bay Blue with a Port. Try it also with a brown-sugary, boozy, Belgian quad. A little dollop of dulce de leche atop a morsel of Bay Blue wouldn't hurt anyone.
