New Cheese Find

Ever since living in Paris for the summer of 2011, I have been fascinated with cheese. So every chance I get to try something new, I go for it. With the ever increasing variety available and more and more grocery stores having specialty cheese sections makes this adventure even easier.

My new find is Wensleydale with Cranberries. And while it is a new cheese to me, according to the British Cheese Board, Wensleydale cheese has been made since 1150.

As a blended cow's milk cheese (you can find blueberries, apricots and cranberries most readily)it  is a perfect partner with fruit. Traditionally paired with crusty bread or hot apple dishes at tea time, it's easy to see why it has stood the test of time. I recently served sliced Wensleydale with freshly baked sliced baguette and chilled red seedless grapes. Paired with a un-oaked Chardonnay, it was a lovely appetizer course.

Have you ever tried Wensleydale? What did you think?
