5 Types of Blue Cheese

1. Danish Blue

Also known as Danablu, this creamy blue cheese is made of full fat cow’s milk and is semi-soft. Slightly moist with an edible rind, Danish Blue takes around 10 weeks to age.

2. Gorgonzola

Made from unskimmed cow’s milk, this is one of the most popular blue cheeses. Gorgonzola is soft, crumbly, salty and famous for its “bite” from the blue veining. It requires around 3-4 months to age.

3. Cabrales

A Spanish blue cheese, Cabrales is a semi-hard cheese made from unpasteurized cow’s milk. With a strong flavor, Cabrales needs to age about 5 months.
