Point Reyes Original Blue
You’ve gotta get up pretty early then wait about five months to make a Blue this good.
So good in fact that Original Blue won Best Cheese/Dairy Product at the 2011 Fancy Food Show in Washington DC (awarded by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade, NASFT).
Creamy, layers of full flavor. All natural and made with raw milk, Original Blue is gluten-free and made with microbial (vegetarian) rennet.
Tasting Note: Sweet, fresh milk with a medium-to-strong punch of blue flavor
Uses: A great Cheese Course blue, perfect for salads, dressings, dips, in a sauce for steak and grilled vegetables
Sweet Foods: honey, figs, stone fruit, berries
Savory Foods: salads, pastas, red meat, vegetables
Drink: Sparkling wine, sweeter white wines such as Viognier, full bodied reds such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon and vintage port
