Blue Monday cheese
Blue Monday is an unusual blue cheese created by Juliet Harbutt (cheese expert) and Alex James (ex-Blur bassist). Juliet and Alex formed the Evenlode Partnership which is based the in Cotswolds. However, the cheese is produced in Tain, which is about an hour north of Inverness, by Ruaraidh Stone of the Highland Fine Cheese Co.
Named after the New Order hit, Blue Monday, the cheese is made from cows' milk, using vegetarian rennet. It is produced in 650 g squares and has a steely, yet sweet flavour. It is milder than most blue cheeses and has a very creamy texture. It is ivory coloured, with purple-blue streaks.
