Adventures in Cheese: Butlers Blacksticks Blue

This is one of the yummiest blue cheeses I've tried so far! Made in my home county of Lancashire by Butler's, it's an amazingly flavourful blue cheese, which comes in several formats: a ready to eat wedge, slices for burgers, a creamy brûlée, and pots of cheese shots (which I used to make cauliflower cheese with).  

You can even buy an age-your-own version, so you can keep it as long (or as short) as you like, depending on the level of flavour you want from it and how strong your willpower is!

What I really enjoy about Butler's Blacksticks Blue cheese is the creaminess of it, yet the texture isn't wet or sticky like some of the continental blue cheeses I've tried. 

It goes so well with savoury crackers, but also melts on toast, and as for that cauliflower cheese, that's another post all by itself!
