Maytag Blue Cheese -
Nestled in among the rolling hills of central Iowa is the Maytag appliance factory. Down the road and around the corner is the Maytag Dairy, which produces Maytag Blue cheese, among other, lesser-known cheeses. Yes, the two are related. Fritz Maytag, son of the founder of the Maytag washing machine company, decided he wanted to make his own entrepreneurial mark on the world. Shortly before World War II, he began working with scientists at Iowa State University to begin making a great American blue cheese, modeled after those of Europe. The result was one of the first American farmstead cheeses of superior quality. The dairy is now independent of the appliance company and collects milk from a local dairy cooperative, rather than raising its own cows. Maytag cheese makers, however, are still hand making the same cheese that they created in the 1930's. Maytag Blue's popularity has taken off with the growing interest in American farmstead cheeses, and this wonderful, tangy blue cheese is now featured on menus across the country. Its wonderful flavor, moist yet crumbly texture, and lemony finish make Maytag one of the world's great blue cheeses.

Give these maytag blue cheese wheels as a gift every year to my friends and family. All enjoy this gift as they ask again every year if I'm going to do it again ! It's a wonderful cheese, great on salads or just to eat with bread or crackers.

This is the BEST blue chesse for cooking and salad making. Smooth, creamy and easily crumbled. Emeril mentioned this cheese several times on his Food Network shows and when I tried it, I was impressed. I order a big wheel once a year, cut it into wedges and store the extra in foodsaver sealed bags. Wonderful!
