White Stilton is made to the same PDO protected standards as Blue Stilton, but without the penicillium roqueforti mould which creates the veins. The result is a delicate white cheese with a fresh mild taste and crumbly texture.
White stilton is a young cheese and is usually sold at just 4 weeks old. It's made from pasteurised cows' milk from local herds from the three Stilton counties. It may be less famous than its big blue brother, but it's just as yummy in its own way and definitely worth a try when you fancy something a little subtler.
What with? White Stilton goes well with both savoury and sweet foods, but is particularly wonderful with fruit like apricots - fresh or in a jar of delicious Apricot Chutney. Cranberry, fig, quince or ginger - this cheese likes many different companions. Highly enjoyable with a glass of Pouilly-Fume.
