Like sweet toffee brittle, with delicate hints at peanut and a mellow peppery spice from the subtle blueing. Devon blue has a decadent dense fudgy texture.
Devon Blue is one of several cheeses made by Ben Harris and his talented team at Ticklemore Cheese Dairy in Totnes, Devon. Beenleigh Blue, a sheep’s milk cheese inspired by Roquefort was created by Ben’s predecessor Robin Congdon. However Robin wanted to create a cows milk blue cheese which could be made all year round unlike sheep’s cheeses where production stops prior to lambing. Milk is gathered from a 10 mile radius from a co-operative of farms. After being moulded and pierced the cheeses are wrapped in foil so a rind cannot develop and hence Devon Blue was created.
