There’s just something about blue cheese that feels just right for the holiday season for me. It pairs well with so many warm, autumnal foods like dates, nuts, figs and pears. In fact, it’s one of my favorite additions to a seasonal charcuterie board.

But, blue cheese goes beyond the basic cheeseboard. Obviously it’s popular when blended into a dressing paired with a big plate of wings. But it’s also fantastic when sprinkled on salads, stuffed into meatballs, baked into mac & cheese and my favorite… used to crust a big hearty steak!

And when it comes to choosing a blue cheese, there is only one name to know… Castello!
