Bleu de Bresse’s cylindrical form is similar to Stilton but this blue has, surprisingly, more in common with Brie in its edible white rind and creamy paste.

Characteristics: Creamy, rich, buttery, sweet with a slight tang from its blue veins.

Best with: Make the most of its creaminess by adding a slice to a well-buttered baked potato and cooking for a couple more minutes until melted but not bubbling.
