A delicious potted cheese spread with toasted walnuts and Stilton's natural drinking partner - Port! Try to use tawny or white port to keep the blue and cream colour of the Stilton cheese when potted. Here is a "potted" history of Stilton Cheese, excuse the pun, I couldn't resist it! Britain's historic blue cheese goes back to the 18th Century; travellers encountering their first taste of Stilton cheese must have spread the word of its remarkable, mouth-pleasing flavour. Today, nearly 300 years later, Stilton is still made exclusively in the English counties of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire from local milk. Only six dairies, using the original centuries-old recipe, are licensed to produce the creamy ivory-hued king of cheeses. So esteemed is Stilton's unique flavour and texture, it is the only British cheese graced with its own certification trademark. More than a cheese, Stilton is prized as the authentic flavour of an earlier time - a taste of history that continues to make news.
