Tarago River Shadows of Blue
This rich double cream blue vein cheese has a creamy flavour, similar to Blue Castello. The cultures grow quickly in the rich milk, producing a firm chalky texture initially, as the cheese ages this 'chalky texture' is broken down by the Roqueforti mould cultures to create a soft pliable texture and a well balanced creamy, full flavour. The wax coating should be removed before eating; it is there to help retain moisture as the cheese ages. Tarago Shadows of Blue is often described as a 'brie eaters blue'.
