A new blue cheese will soon be made in Oxford, England… by a Frenchman!
“Oxford Blue cheese is to be made here in the county for the first time.
And its creator, a French-born baron, believes it could one day rival Stilton.
Almost 20 years after coming up with the idea for a soft and creamy English blue cheese, Robert Pouget – who prefers not to use his full title of Robert Pouget de Saint Victor – has at last been given the go-ahead to make Oxford Blue in the county of its name.
Mr Pouget, 74, said: “It’s thrilling news. After many years of looking for a suitable premises in the county and going backwards and forwards with planners, we have been granted permission to make Oxford Blue in a converted barn in Upton, just outside Burford.”
