1 For cheeseboard use, take Stilton out of the fridge up to 2 hours before serving to reach room temperature; serve with plum bread or a mango chutney for a change.
2 Sweet wines go especially well with Stilton – Port being the favoured choice of many; try a dessert wine for a change or a full bodied robust red wine.
3 Stilton freezes beautifully. Simply cut into easy to handle portions, wrap in cling film or foil and freeze for up to 3 months. De-frost slowly – preferably in the fridge overnight.
4 Stilton crumbles effortlessly for use in salads, soups and dips. If taken straight from the fridge it slices easily for sandwich use. Grating straight from the freezer is also possible and a boon for last minute recipes.
