In England, Stilton isn’t just a cheese—it’s an institution, displayed with pride on sideboards in pubs and restaurants throughout Britain. Our aged Stilton from the Long Clawson Dairy in Melton Mowbray lives up to its reputation as the king of English cheeses. Aged for three months, the cow’s milk cheese has the variety’s characteristic blue veining, rich, complex flavors and a moist, firm, yet crumbly texture. Stilton is traditionally served after dinner with a fine port or Sauterne, fruit and nuts—a perfect ending to a holiday meal.
- Weighs 2 lb. minimum.
- Made in England.
- A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
- Refrigerate the cheese in the vegetable drawer upon receipt. It keeps 1 month refrigerated, unopened, 2 weeks when opened. After opening the package, scrape away excess surface mold. (An earthy-looking mold is normal on a well-aged cheese.) Wrap any unused portion in waxed paper or in cheesecloth covered with aluminum foil.
- For optimum flavor, serve the cheese at room temperature. Traditional fare in English pubs and restaurants, Stilton is often paired with port, crusty bread, sweet butter, English biscuits, walnuts or pears. After you've eaten the cheese, the shell remains; pour in wine and dip in chunks of bread.
