Delight both your adventurous customers and those with more conservative palettes alike with this St. Clemens Green Island PGI Danish blue cheese! This Danish blue ("Danablu") cheese is made from the milk of cows who graze on lush green pastures and is aged for 8 to 12 weeks in a humid, temperature-controlled environment that encourages the growth of the Penicillium bacteria that gives blue cheeses their distinctive blue-green veining. The result is a tangy, slightly sharp cheese whose strong flavor is tempered by the sweetness of the milk, making it considerably more mild than stronger blues like Stilton or Roquefort. The ivory interior of this cheese is lined with delicate blue veins and its soft texture is perfect for slicing or crumbling!
This milder version of blue cheese is perfect for featuring on your cheese board because it allows you to offer a flavorful delicacy that won't be overpowering! Pair it with sweet fruits like figs, strawberries, dried apricots, pears, or peaches, savory walnuts, prosciutto, or golden honey for a truly delectable spread. When considering beverage pairings that complement this tangy cheese, opt for fruity reds that aren't too dry, such as Merlot or Pinot Noir, or whites that aren't too forward, like Sauvignon Blanc, dry Riesling, or Italian white wine. This blue cheese is also an excellent addition to your menu, especially as a substitution for recipes that call for stronger blue cheeses like Roquefort. This cheese is truly delightful when sprinkled over a salad, and can even be used to make a handcrafted, gourmet blue cheese dressing! You can also use it to add tangy creaminess to roasted vegetables, pasta dishes, or sauces and dips. Add this mild Danish blue cheese to a classic roasted beet and blue cheese salad, or use it to top off a juicy burger loaded with caramelized onions and leafy greens! This 6 lb. cheese wheel will keep you well stocked with what is sure to become a favorite on your menu.
St. Clemens has been making cheese since 1950 in their picturesque location on the Danish island of Bornholm. Though its location is remote, Bornholm's position in the middle of the Baltic sea exposes it to more hours of sunlight than almost anywhere else in Scandinavia, and this mild climate has earned it the nickname "Sunshine Island." The cows that graze on Bornholm's lush, sun-drenched pastures produce milk that is particularly sweet and flavorful - qualities that help make the cheese produced at St. Clemens truly exceptional. They make their award-winning milk, butter, and cheese products with a commitment to quality that shines through in every flavorful mouthful.
