We know there has been a lot of cooking and baking underway when we were all at home and our valued sponsor Whitestone Cheese provided some delicious recipes we thought you might enjoy too!

Drunken Windsor Blue:

Ingredients:

110g Windsor Blue wedge (as many as you like)

The Dubliner – Irish Whisky Liqueur, enough to cover cheese

Method:

Soak whole Windsor Blue wedge(s) overnight in a bowl of 'The Dubliner - Irish Whisky Liqueur' at constant temperature. Cover to keep it safe.

Finishing / serve with:

The result is an aromatic blue cheese with notes of honey and hints of caramel.

The alcohol evaporates quickly but the blue cheese will be ‘drunk’ and ready to be enjoyed at room temperature. The perfect dessert on its own or as part of a cheese board.
