Mrs Temple’s handmade Binham Blue is the pride of Norfolk. Handmade at Copys Green Farm in Wighton, Catherine Temple uses milk from the farm’s own herd of Brown Swiss cows. We’ve had the privilege of watching Catherine at work in her dairy adding the spores of Penicillium Roqueforti that make it blue. The result is an award-winning full flavoured and creamy textured cheese with a wonderful bite and a sweet tang. Read more
My "go to" local blue! This is a great mid-strength cheese with a gentle hint of cracked peppercorns.
Country of Origin
In February 2018 Clare and John headed to north Norfolk to visit Mrs Temple and her cheeses. Catherine Temple is a well-established East Anglian cheese-maker who makes a range of eight cheeses designed to offer a complete Norfolk cheeseboard including Binham Blue. It was a fabulous hands-on experience - you can find out more on our blog >
Binham Blue makes a great addition to any cheeseboard. Another of Slate’s standout range of artisan, locally made East Anglian cheese (also try St Jude, Baron Bigod & Norfolk Dapple for an all local selection). Rich & creamy with a mushroomy blue running throughout. Lovely stuff!
