Back in the swinging days of May 1988, the Board of English Cheesemakers sat down at their annual meeting to devise ways to boost flagging sales of traditional English blue cheese. Legend has it that ideas included everything from illuminating Big Ben in blue lights to temporarily renaming some of the Tube stations after different blue cheeses. Eventually a more traditional approach was settled on: a blue cheese awareness month.
To honor English Blue Cheese Awareness Month we've put all 3, that's right all 3, of our English blue cheeses on special. All three come to us from Neal's Yard Dairy in London. They include:
Colston Basset Stilton--the classic
Colston Basset Shropshire Blue--the beauty in orange
Stichelton--the elusive raw milk newcomer
These are some of our very favorite blue cheeses and we are pleased to be offering 15% off these cheeses for the next week.
