Danish Blue is a semi-soft, creamy cheese made from cow's milk. Compared to the powerful flavor of a Roquefort, this is considered a mild blue cheese. It's commonly sold in wedges, drums, or blocks. The needling process takes place in the curd phase, and Penicillium Roqueforti is inserted evenly into the deep channels.
