Mrs Bells Blue Cheese
An award-winning blue sheeps milk cheese, made by Shepherds Purse at Leachfield Grange near Thirsk, in North Yorkshire.
It possibly resembles an original 'medieval' Wensleydale in style, having a creamy texture which contrasts with the saltiness of the blue and natural sweetness of the ewes' milk. Yorkshire Blue is a cows milk version.
It has been compared to Roquefort, but creamier and less salty. Cheeses are made in 1.5kg rounds and are also offered in 125gr packs. For more information see www.shepherdspurse.co.uk (http://www.shepherdspurse.co.uk/)
