If you’re one of those people who can’t decide whether to go for dessert or cheese at the end of your meal, then this next offering is just for you.
Choco 21 is a blue cheese that’s been lathered in chocolate liquor and topped with cocoa powder and chocolate chips - and we’re really not sure what to think. Cheese can definitely benefit from being offset with a nice sweetness, think of how well-caramelised onions goes with it, but hardcore blue cheese with alcoholic chocolate covering? It’s actually not uncommon, dark chocolate and blue cheese have been used in desserts before and there's some science behind the idea.
