Asher Blue is a raw cow's milk blue cheese. The cheese makers at Sweet Grass Dairy named this cheese after their middle child, and according to the Wehners, this cheese is certainly mischievous enough in the production process to be named after Asher! However, when this cheese behaves the result is anything but trouble. The dense, creamy paste has the characteristic blue veins producing a rich, robust flavor.
Asher Blue can be used to create sophisticated appetizers like mushroom caps stuffed with shallots and herbs or you can simply crumble it on top of a juicy burger. It can be used as the key ingredient for a terrific salad dressing.
Beverage-wise Asher is versatile. It pairs well with zesty wines like Port or Sauternes, but also stands up to full-bodied reds like California Cabernet Sauvignon. For our beer drinkers, a strong ale like Chimay Blue or Arrogant Bastard Ale is your best bet.
