DIRECTIONS

  • Add the blue cheese to a pestle and mortar or a large bowl and pound to a smooth paste.
  • Now add the whisky drop by drop, and stir into the creamed blue cheese.
  • Continue adding whisky for as long as it is still incorporated into the cheese (or as much as the blue cheese can drink!) and it makes a firm cream.
  • Season with freshly ground black pepper to taste and pack into ramekins.
  • Chill well before serving and serve either as an unusual pâté for a starter or as a savoury dish to end a meal.
  • Serve with toast, crackers, water biscuits or oatcakes, and fresh watercress.
