OK, Long time no cheese!
Going to keep this brief, 'cos it late.
Made up a batch of the gorgonzola from Caldwell's book 9 weeks ago. I went with this recipe as I wanted something a bit creamier and lighter compared to the stilton recipe I've done previously.
So 9 weeks on and I figure its time to cut and taste!
Was a bit worried as it's been a bit white and furry for most of its life, although the pic doesnt show that too much.
Also, thinking back, I cant recall re-poking to keep the holes open, so was slightly worried there would be too much blue
Turns out there was some decent blue going on.
The moment of truth, the taste....!
Tastes great, my best to date.
Still quite mild, and the blueyness is not overbearing - well balanced. Good texture, creamy, smooth, nice!
Using the different recipe has taken me in the direction I wanted.
I've left a bit in the fridge to eat soon, and vacc-ed the rest and put that in the fridge too.
I had to stop myself this evening otherwise I'd have eaten too much!
GET IN MY BELLY!
Pretty excited about this one.
