Try adding some blue cheese and sour cream to some of your cooking recipes, I only really discovered recently how much of a difference it makes. It works in almost every kind of sauce or broth. Yum!
Analysis of paleofeces sampled in the salt mines of Hallstatt (Austria) showed that miners of the Hallstatt Period (800 to 400 BC) already consumed blue cheese and beer.
The discovery of Blue cheese is also very intresting. According to legend, one of the first blue cheeses, Roquefort, was discovered when a young boy, eating bread and ewes’ milk cheese, abandoned his meal in a nearby cave after seeing a beautiful girl in the distance. When he returned months later, the mold (Penicillium roqueforti) had transformed his cheese into Roquefort.
Blue chesse can be of any milk (cattle, goat, sheep) with same making process.
You can find blue cheese with different names. In the European Union, blue cheese cooking recipes are very popular many blue cheeses, such as Cabrales, Danablu, Gorgonzola, Roquefort and Blue Stilton, carry a protected designation of origin, meaning they can bear the name only if they have been made in a particular region. Similarly, individual countries have protections of their own such as France’s Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée and Italy’s Denominazione di Origine Protetta. (source Wikipedia)
