I too made a small batch--now I have to make it again and in a larger quantity! A wonderful mix of flavors. Thanks, Rose.

I made up one serving of this and it is delicious! The Stilton and Port are made for one another. I had it made and in the fridge, 'ripening' in 5 minutes. DH and I enjoyed it as a late night snack.
