Roaring 40'S Blue Cheese
King Island, home to the eponymous dairy, is located just south of Melbourne, Australia. On this pollution-free land, cows graze upon a variety of grasses, supplemented by the occasional meal of sea kelp washed ashore during the powerful gales known as “the roaring forties” which frequently bring westerly winds of more than 100km per hour to the island, which lies on 40 degrees latitude. The island’s cows' milk is used to make this fudgy, superbly fruity, nutty blue. Rindless, it is matured in its blue-purple wax, which promotes its sweet and fruity flavour. The wax also assists in retaining the blue's moisture, creating a smooth and creamy texture.
