Montagnolo Cheese, Lactose free blue cheese
Creamily delicious, lactose free!
DESCRIPTIONMontagnolo cheese is a really gorgeous naturally Lactose free cheese (but don't let that put you off!) from Germany made by Käserei Champignon. A very creamy blue cheese with a lovely gentle but rich blue flavour. Mould ripened, it won the Supreme Champion award at the 2013 International Cheese Awards. The lactose is used up as the cheese matures, so actually you'll fine that lots of long matured cheese only have a tiny trace element of lactose. I think the reason this cheese won it's much debated accolade is that it's a real crowd pleaser, it's the only blue our 12 year old daughter likes, although I also think it's very palatable and would very happily tuck in and I'm a blue fiend so there tells a tale. Suitable for a really wide range of tastes, this is a good option for a wedding stack or family gathering. Measuring 18cm by 7cm high for a whole cheese.

Tasty blue cheese
Being lactose intolerant I have to be careful which cheese I can eat usually sticking to hard chedder types. However to find a really nice blue cheese without having to worry (my fave is colston Bassett) is excellent. Don't worry about it being lactose free if you don't have an issue. It's really tasty but not too blue. Can't wait to collect my bit for Xmas 2019.
