From rock star to cheese maker, Alex James from Blur decided to name his decadent blue cheese after his favourite New Order song. A true masterpiece, this rich and delicious Gorgonzola-esque blue is dripping with a rich & creamy texture. Blue Monday is matured for 8 weeks and has been described by the man himself as... “very moist, very gooey, spicy with quite a mellow flavour with sweet notes," Along with his cheese-making partner, Juliet Harbutt, James has created a wonderful cheese we think goes really well with a sweet, dessert wine, a dark beer or stout.... and plenty of fresh baguette!

A Goldilocks blue cheese. The mellow nature of the blue of Gorgonzola A firmer texture closer to Stilton (less crumbly) Beautiful balance of blue tang and creaminess Light nutty notes Delicious on a cheese plate and I could imagine it melted on pizza (although it would almost be a waste)
