Blue Cheese
From Wikibooks, the open-content textbooks collection

Blue cheese is a general classification of cow's milk, sheep's milk and/or goat's milk cheeses that has had Penicillium cultures added so that the final product is spotted or veined throughout with blue or blue-green mould. Some blue cheeses are injected with spores before the curds have been formed and others have spores mixed in with the curds before they are formed. Blue cheeses are typically aged in a temperature-controlled environment such as a cave.

Much like wines, many blue cheeses such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola, and Stilton are a protected designation of origin in the European Union, meaning they can only bear the name if they have been made in a particular region in a certain country. Similarly, individual countries have protections of their own such as France's Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée.

The characteristic flavor of blue cheeses tends to be sharp and a bit salty. They can be eaten by themselves or can be crumbled or melted over foods.
