Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese is one of America's most admired blue cheese makers. Located in the green rolling hills of Marin County, just north of San Francisco, this creamery has quickly become a standout, creating American originals that any worldly cheese eater can be proud of. Bay Blue is their second-born cheese, after the immensely popular "Original Blue".
Bay Blue is a buttery, earthy blue with a light sweetness and a dry, fudgy, crumbly texture. Aged for three months, its flavor is more mellow and balanced than other blues - even winning over some of the blue-dubious among us.
Bay Blue is made from pasteurized cow's milk, and aged for three months, which allows it to develop mushroomy notes and a beautiful natural rind.
This award-winning cheese has endless cooking applications, or can be enjoyed straight-up with crackers, bread or fruit. Pair with whites, reds, bubbles or rose, or sweeter after-dinner drinks like port or barrel-aged Scotch. This rustic yet refined blue is a must-try, worthy of a spot on any table.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can purchase an entire wheel of approx. 6 pounds.
