Cheese of the week - Harrogate Blue

May 31, 2014 Stephen Fleming

Our cheese of the week is also one of our biggest sellers - Harrogate Blue.  The cheese has also just won a gold medal at the British Cheese Awards earlier this week.

Created by Judy Bell's daughters Katie and Caroline at Shepherd's Purse Cheeses in Thirsk, it was launched in 2012 and won Best New Product at the Great Yorkshire Show in the same year.  It then won a silver medal at the World Cheese Awards and a gold at the Gobal Cheese awards in the same year.

Matured for at least 10 weeks the cheese has a creamy texture and a peppery finish.
