Stilton is an excellent table cheese, appropriate for snacks, cooking, and fine cheese plates. It enlivens salads, hors d’oeuvres, and fruit dishes. For dishes that require a melting cheese, like pasta, quiche, pizza, stuffed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, rice dishes (especially those with sage and walnuts), cheese scones, grilled sandwiches, and French bread, the distinctive flavor of Stilton is a great choice. It complements a range of soups, sauces, and meat and vegetable dishes as well. It also adapts nicely to regional dishes such as quesadillas and tenderloin with Cajun seasonings.
