    Recipe Blue Cheese, Fig & Greengage Tart

    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.

    Recipe Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon, Blue Cheese and Pink Peppercorns

    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...

    Blue Cheese Poll

    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.

    Blue cheese = horrible

    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...

    Blue Cheese Question

    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?
