Joe is a born American who has dual British citizenship has been cheese-making in England for almost 20 years, and specifically making his creation, Stichelton, for a decade on the beautiful Welbeck Estate, in Nottinghamshire.
Fine Cheese in Bath have collaborated with Joe to create a unique Toast. In fact nothing else like it exists on the market.
A generous amount of unpasteurised Stichelton blue cheese is combined with buttermilk, flour, sesame seeds, and a dash of lemon juice, and then carefully seasoned.
Each slice of Toast is cut thinly to make it super-light and crunchy, and the taste is deeply savoury.
Warning – it’s so good, it’s addictive.
Stichelton Toast almost cries out for a drink, its cheesy, slightly salty, umami tang and crispy texture make a sophisticated mouthful that begs alcohol. We would recommend a chilled 10 year old Tawny Port.
