Blue Stilton is a big cheese, not only in fame but also in size: a typical wheel is 18 lbs. Long Clawson has made a smaller wheel that is manageable for a private setting. This wheel of approximately 4.5 lbs. is made exactly the same way as its huge sibling.
This wheel is wonderful for a party. Your guest can endjoy numerous pairings with this cheese: various wines, the classic Port, sweet white wine, Sauternes, Sherry, Porter, Stout and more. Use the wheel as a centerpiece and surround with a variety of bread and crackers, nuts and fruits, and jams.
For the brave: there is an English tradition of slicing the top off the wheel, and pouring Port into the wheel, allowing the sweet wine to seep into all the blue cheese cracks. Next is to scoop out bites of salty tangy cheese blended with sweet syrupy Port.
Long Clawson's Blue Stilton is one of those cheeses you will need to try once as it is a corner stone of traditional gourmet blue cheese. For true lovers of Stilton, this small wheel is the most authentic experience of this magnificent cheese.
