Cheese of the week – Yorkshire Blue

This week’s cheese is from Shepherds Purse- Yorkshire Blue is a mild, soft, creamy and blue veined cheese made from Yorkshire cows’ mill. This wonderful cheese is sweet and buttery with no sharp bite. Launched in 1995, Yorkshire Blue was the first blue cheese at Shepherds Purse and the first cheese made from cow’s milk, also the first blue cheese to be made in Yorkshire for 30 years.

This multi-winning cheese is handmade and matured over eight weeks. Each week, they turn each individual cheese by hand, which helps to achieve the lovely blue veining and even smooth texture.
