This white cheese with its blue veins is one of the most delicious cheeses coming from England. Blue Stilton cheese is made in England exclusively, to be precise in the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. Only cheese made in these counties can ever be considered proper Stilton. Apart from this, the cheese has to have a cylindrical shape, be ripened naturally, and have long veins of blue radiating through it.

The history of the Blue Stilton
Blue Stilton cheese has a fairly long history, beginning right around the 18th century. The first Englishman ever to sell Stilton cheese was Cooper Thornhill, the owner of the Bell Inn at Stilton, Huntingdonshire. In 1730 Cooper was visiting a nearby farm when he discovered a certain blue cheese. Back then, all farms made their own cheeses and these were all very different in taste, smell and look. Cooper fell in love with this particular blue cheese and bought the rights to it, so that his inn could sell the cheese. His inn was a busy and popular establishment along one of the main trade routes, so his Stilton soon spread out around England and sales boomed. However, even before that, the town of Stilton was well-known for its cheese, even though back then it was called English Parmesan. English writer Daniel Defoe (the writer of Robinson Crusoe) wrote about the town of Stilton and the well-known cheese in 1724. In 1936 the cheese makers’ association regulated the Stilton cheese standards to protect the authentic cheese, and that is why the guidelines right now are so strict. The Stilton cheese is the only English cheese which is protected in this way, and with good reason! If you haven’t yet, make sure you taste this delicious English cheese, you’ll surely love it.
