12 Days of Cheesemas–Day 5

Pt. Reyes Original Blue is one of those perfect blues. It’s bitey, peppery, salty, crumbly and doesn’t kill your palate or, as Gorgonzola’s have a habit of doing to me, flood my sinuses with an acidic burn. It’s pleasant and the blue most likely to appear in any recipe I make that calls for a veined cheese. Maytag may be one of the best known domestically produced blue cheeses, but Pt. Reyes is one of the tastiest.
