Binham Blue is a semi-soft cheese, made with pasteurised milk. The interior is pale yellow, with grey-blue specks. It has a creamy texture and a tasty and luxurious flavour which is not overwhelming, but full of character. It is more like Gorgonzola than Stilton. It has a coarse, rough, orange-grey rind with some powdery spots.
The cheese won a Bronze Award at the British Cheese Awards in 2004.
Mrs Temple’s Cheeses make other cheeses such as Well’s Norfolk Alpine, Walsingham, Melton Mozarella, Wighton and Warhams.
