Chiriboga Blue

Sweet cream with hints of earth and grass.

Quick Overview:

A rich, creamy Roquefort-style blue made by Ecuadorian Arturo Chiriboga. A multi-continental tale of love and cheese.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Germany
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

The backstory cannot be understated with this cheese. Ecuadorian cheesemaker falls in love with German Frau and settles into the good life in the Bavarian Alps. This cheese is a labor of love and it shows. The smooth, luscious texture and its mild blue character make it an ideal "gateway" blue. Often described -quite accurately- as blue cheese iced cream. What's not to love about that?

The Story

Arturo Chiriboga developed the recipe for his Blue using Roquefort as a starting point. However Arturo does a few things that are slightly unorthodox for blue cheeses. For one, he brines the whole wheels rather than hand salting the curds or wheels. This allows for a dense, cool, creamy texture to emerge as the cheese ages.

Usage Tips

Pair Chiriboga blue with something sparkly like prosecco or champagne...or if you're feeling adventurous a sparkling red like lambrusco. Try fresh berries - or some preserves from Tait farms for nice balance of sweet and savory.

    For those of us wanting a rich, creamy blue without all the brine and bite ... this is it! Wonderful taste with just a touch of blue zing.
