In my never-ending quest to find new food experiences, I will sometimes find an ingredient that I haven’t cooked with and then look to find a recipe to highlight it. This time, stilton cheese.

I had occasionally had some stilton on a cheese tray, but had never cooked with it. I assure you, I will cook with it some more. This was excellent.

Stilton is a variety of blue cheese that must be made in the three counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire in England. Curiously the town of Stilton does not fall in any of those counties.
