Most things you can do with cheddar or blue you can do with this punchier version of the former and mellower version of the latter. It’s best at room temperature or melted in our humble opinion. Don’t mind if we do, and as often as we can!
We like to pair these potent hybrids with bigger beverages. Ciders and fruit beers are good bets, as is a solid porter. Cabernet sauvignon and chianti both have the strength to stand up and complement cheddar blue, as do port and madeira.
There isn’t much that these versatile cheddar blues can’t do. We particularly enjoy them sandwiched in-between a classic blue and farmstead cheddar on a cheese board. We’re also pretty fond of it melted on top of, or crumbled inside, a hefty grilled burger.
