Blue veined cheeses such as Roquefort and Gorgonzola are becoming more popular due to the versatile and creative dishes they enhance. These cheeses boast blue and green streaks of harmless, yet flavor-producing mold throughout the interior. Blue veined cheese is crumbly or creamy in texture with piquant flavor. Most blue veined cheese requires longer, slower cooking to incorporate into sauces.
Blue cheese adds elegance to salads, pizza, pears or apples, or pasta for that one of a kind dish. Try it with your favorite Cabernet, Merlot or Sauvignon Blanc.
