Used this to make gorgonzola Dolce... my most advanced cheese yet. Things went well... I can't wait to see how it turns out in a few months!



It would be useful if the package were more easily resealable since only a small amount is used at a time.

A blue which won't give you the blues

We always use this particular mold for our own blue cheese, Black Orchid Blue, which we make here in tropical Belize, Central America. One of our problems, as it is for many artisan cheesemakers, is conssistency. Using this mold, we achieve very consistent, and delicious, resuts.

This is a very nice product but be careful not to exceed the recommended amounts, err on the light side and move up if required. I have made a lot of the blue d'Auvergne and you must keep the curds separate for the best results.

It makes an impressive cheese every time!

The commercial blues in the stores are usually quite strong and dry. I tried making the d'Auvergne blue because the description was intriguing. What I got was a creamy, delicious and robust cheese that works as well melted on my arugula/garlic pizza as smeared on a good crusty bread. My Italian friend says it tastes like the best gorgonzola.



I've been making it just about once a month for a year, and this mold continues to provide great, consistent results. Sometimes the cheeses are a little softer or more solid but the taste and the way the mold develops the cheese is consistently good. Very happy.

Blue cheese is one of the easiest cheeses to make. It does not need pressing and it can be ready in as little as 6 weeks. I use the roqueforti mold and Gorgonzola Dolce recipe from this web site. It's a great product and my family loves the result. The mold powder keeps well in the freezer too.
