Cheese of the Month – September 2016
Blue cheese offers various levels of flavor that appeal to different customer preferences.
However, while Blue cheese retail sales recently have increased 0.3 percent (52 weeks ending Aug. 7, 2016, U.S. multi-outlet and convenience stores), its retail sales generally have been on a modest decline over the last five years, according to Information Resources Inc. (IRI) data courtesy of Dairy Management Inc.
Similarly, Anderson notes that Old Chatham tends to stick to traditional methods when making EweвЂ™s Blue, which he says yield the best results.
The companyвЂ™s second-most popular flavor, Smokey Blue, has a bolder taste that binds together sweet and savory flavors, Plowman says.
While the cheese is not yet for sale, Old Chatham is experimenting with local beer and cider flavors to accompany its Blue cheese. Pairing especially well is a dark brown double ale that adds a sweet, fruity taste with notes of caramel, Anderson says. To produce the flavor, the cheese is washed with the brew daily starting several weeks before it is wrapped, he adds.
Blue and Gorgonzola are the only two blue-veined cheese varieties that hold a U.S. standard of identity in FDAвЂ™s Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Sommer says.
Some, such as Old ChathamвЂ™s EweвЂ™s Blue, do well with cooking.
Meanwhile, Old Chatham Sheepherding Creamery, Old Chatham, New York, offers a sheepвЂ™s milk EweвЂ™s Blue that has a вЂњfudgyвЂќ texture and a rich, lightly salted and somewhat sweet flavor вЂ” a good alternative to Roquefort, says Eric Anderson, lead Blue cheesemaker, Old Chatham.
