INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: BLUE CHEESE

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

Creamy, tangy and just the right side of salty, blue cheese is a delight when used in salads, sauces, or simply on its own.

HOW TO

It stands up as the hero on a cheeseboard, adds richness to a crunchy, acidic salad and accentuates, rather than overwhelms, the mild flavour of pear and honey crostini. Once you’ve mastered homemade gnocchi (this is easier than you might think) try them topped with crumbled blue cheese.

TOP TIP

Crumble blue cheese into a béchamel sauce ready to be used for an interesting take on that classic and comforting side dish, cauliflower cheese.
