Produced by Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire, the Thomas Hoe Stevenson line (named for its founder) represents the finest versions of their classic English cheeses. Protected by its PDO designation, Clawson is one of only a few dairies producing true Stilton cheese. Compared to other blues, Stilton is mellow, nutty and firm, and makes an ideal complement to pears and walnuts.
During the holidays, buying Stilton in England is an established tradition. Many cheese shops host sales contests, and families buy a mini (or a whole wheel of Stilton for the bold) and eat it with every meal for weeks around the holidays.
