Blue Cheese Potatoes
About the cheese. There are many kinds of blue cheese in this world, and almost every country has its own signature variation on the theme. They are made by inoculating the curds with spores of cultures of the mold Penecillium. When the mold grows you get a cheese with blue or blue-green flecks or veins. In England, the signature blue is Stilton, made from cows milk. In Italy it is Gorgonzola, is also made from cows milk. In France it is Roquefort, made from sheep's milk. In the US, the most famous is Maytag from Iowa.
