I was quite pleased with myself making this because I made the rough puff pastry from scratch but (due to current supplies of flour) I had no plain flour. I used self-raising flour instead and it worked perfectly well. Please use ready made puff pastry if you wish. I also made the greengage jam...
Ingredients for Filling
800g chuck steak and kidney (50/50 cut in to large pieces)
1 large brown onion (chopped)
1 large carrot (chopped)
2 stalks of rosemary, leaves stripped off and chopped
6-7 sprigs thyme (tied in to a bundle with one of the sprigs)
2 cups beef stock
2 tbsp tomato paste
Kalettes are a hybrid of Brussels sprouts and kale. They cook very quickly and have a delicious sweet nutty flavour which is enhanced by toasted sesame oil. Pairing them with blue cheese adds a salty savoury tang.
Ingredients (serves 2 as a side)
50g Blue cheese
Tonight will make the 17th time we have made this cole slaw. Needless to say, we like it very much. lol Hope you will also. (A note on one time we made it with green grapes said they were too sour)
Blue Cheese Cole Slaw
1 (16 oz.) package shredded coleslaw mix
2 cups seedless red grapes...
2 duck breasts, skin removed and minced coarsely
1 tbsp dried breadcrumbs (I used packet Panko)
1/2 tsp salt (smoked, if you have it)
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper.
50g blue cheese (I used Stilton)
Combine all of the ingredients apart from...
I’m such a sucker for alliteration. Here, bananas melt into a sweet harmony with salty bacon and blue cheese. This is such a very easy and fast recipe to make. It serves two for a snack or even a light lunch if you add some salad.

Slightly salty bacon and blue cheese with sweet caramelised onions always works as a combination and the mushrooms provide an earthy, musky foundation. But then I wanted something sour and spicy to contrast. It so happened that my friend had a jar of pickled pink peppercorns in the fridge. So...
This recipe uses tinned artichoke hearts which, when cut in half, miraculously just fit into a 23cm tart tin! I wanted to create layers of contrasting flavour rather than mixing all the ingredients together. So - a layer of spinach, a layer of blue cheese, a layer of caramelised artichoke...
This is all about sweet and sour. The classic combination is blue cheese, pear and walnuts, but here I've used parsnip roasted in maple syrup instead of pears. Serves 2 as a light lunch with bread or as a side salad.

You could substitute another blue cheese for Roquefort or perhaps use Feta and you could substitute oranges, tangerines or clementines for the satsumas. The main point here is the taste combination of salty cheese, sweet orange and tomato and bitter chicory. I haven't given quantities of...
Do you love it or hate it? Or perhaps you don't get it in your country. I was really surprised by the response to @HornedDemoN 's post Blue Cheese = Horrible. On a foodie form, I expected the majority to love it... so I thought a quick poll might be interesting.
Now I'm pretty open-minded with cheese, but blue cheese is just horrible. Bad taste, unappealing to the eye and just disgusting. So what's the appeal of it, can anyone explain? Perhaps you can add it to something and possibly make it taste better? I just can't think of something like that, but I...
I really like the flavor of blue cheese, but find that it can be very overpowering and strong in flavor (and odor peeeeyoooooo :hyper:). Is there any other cheese that gives the same flavoring as blue cheese, but is not as strong?
