Castello Summer of Blue — Loaded Blue Cheese Burger

Blue cheese can be quite intimidating. It is tinged with mold, after all. And the smell is a taste to be acquired. But this beautiful blue-green veined cheese, spotted with appealing color, has a wonderful tangy character, balanced by delicious sweet and salty flavors that are perfect sandwich between a grilled burger brimming with crunchy vegetables. If you are taken aback by blue cheese, definitely try is first in a meaty, juicy burger, like I did with a thick slice of mild, pleasantly sharp and sweet Castello Noble Blue.

I particularly love the marbling that blue cheese gives this sky high burger with chipotle mayo. It adds a bit of elegance to an otherwise cotidein food. If you’re looking to get extra fancy, pair this blue cheese decked burger with a semi-sweet or sweet wine like Cavernet, Zinfandel, Chardonnay or Sauvigon Blanc to complement the cheese’s salty taste.
