Danish cheese is a semi-soft, blue mold cow's milk cheese with a slighty tangy taste. This Blue is milder and creamer then most and is ideal in salads, dressings, dips and desserts.
Danish Blue is also known as Danablu, the Danes invented this blue gourmet cheese in 1927 as an alternative to Roquefort. Though quite unlike Roquefort, Danish Blue cheese has been a huge commercial success and is sold worldwide.
Danish Blue cheese is factory made from pasteurized milk which has been homogenized to ensure a smooth curd and clear taste. It is rindless and comes in foil-wrapped shapes. Danish Blue paste is milk white with very blue veins and a few irregularly distributed holes. It is soft and a little crumbly but surprisingly easy to slice. The flavor is distinctively sharp and salty and without qualification, quite consistently enjoyable.
Danish Blue is a welcome addition to any gourmet cheese board, tasting session or simply to enjoy in one of those epicurean moments of self indulgent pleasure.
