Port Wine Soaked Blue Cheese



  1. Take a chunk of blue cheese, 400 g or more, as needed. Place the cheese in a jar with a hinged lid. Prick the cheese in several places with a skewer to allow the wine to saturate it. Cover the cheese with Port wine. Close the jar and let the cheese soak in the refrigerator or in a cool, dark place. It will be ready in three or four days. Keeps for two or three weeks in the refrigerator. Serve with slices of walnut bread. 


I would even suggest serving it with slices of banana and nuts or cranberries and nuts bread... This may sound strange, but just try. If you eat blue cheese for the first time, drizzle it with honey. Complete the look with some dried fruit such as prunes, apricots, dates, and pretty nuts in their shell. To offer as a gift, present with a good bottle of port wine.
