I’m a great fan of Barkham Blue cheese which regularly appears on the menus at my two local restaurants The Greyhound near Henley on Thames, and Windsor Grill. A rich, blue cheese which is traditionally made – and one which is so versatile. I do care Two Hoots about my cheese. Delighted to give you two recipes to enjoy.
