This gourmet cheese was the first Irish blue cheese, named after the Rock of Cashel overlooking the pastures close to the cheese farm of the family Grubb.
This great Irish cheese is wrapped in gold foil. Cashel Blue has a beige rind, which develops a pinkish cast as it matures, and the paste moves from firm to soft texture. At a young age of approx. 6 weeks, when it starts to leave the comfort of the cheese factory, the ivory paste is quite crumbly with a tangy flavor. Over the next 6 weeks this dapper cheese develops a much creamier texture and a stronger, more piquant flavor of dried herbs and woody leaf mold.
It does a top job on a grilled steak, creates a dream team with ripe pears or figs and is a must to try in leafy green salads.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can also purchase an entire wheel of approx 4 pounds.
Ingredients:pasteurized milk, salt, cheese cultures, enzymes, penicillium roqueforti.
