Yes, I know what you mean and I have a 29 year old son who thinks along that line, too.. You could put it in beautiful serving bowls and add the bleu cheese then for those who would appreciate it.

I love the sound of this and am a blue cheese fan, often have it on steak. Sounds like there would be lots of flavour, especially with the rehydrated mushrooms. Let us know when you try it. Thanks for posting it.

Not a fan of blue cheese? Does not have to be a strong one how about try a white Castello and see what you think....mind you crumbled feta would be yum too. I always have that in the fridge.

I usually add red wine too. Had beef burgundy at my DD's place recently. Have not made coc au vin for a long time. Must remember to do it again as I do like it. Great you have things your Grandma taught you. Unfortunately mine was only around in my childhood and all I remember foodwise it her bickie/cookie jar! LOL. Oh wait I am wrong...she taught me to sit on the back step and shell fresh peas...and eat a bunch as I went LOL. Had not thought about that in a long time. I looked at some fresh peas in the store and will but some soon. Love them.

Castello is a cheese manufacturer that used to mainly make blue cheeses but now makes a wonderful white version. It is a Danish white mould full fat soft cheese. It has a very mild taste and becomes more creamy the longer you keep it. It goes with heaps of different foods and is delicious on it's own. It looks like this. As you can see although it is a mould cheese you really can't see the mould.They make a really nice Danish blue cheese too if you are a blue cheese fan. I guess you can tell I am lol.

Absolutely sweet, you don't need to cook, just put in boiling water to warm and a minute or two later get them out. I really need to buy some fresh peas soon. For some reason I have been on a fresh green bean kick lately.
