Stilton & Walnut Cob

Stilton & Walnut Cob

made this using a strong Stilton. The smell was gorgeous. In addition to the cob I made a cottage loaf and some rolls. There is no need for filling with the rolls as they are a meal in themselves. The bread would equally be at home on a cheeseboard. 

I made these using a poolish. 

Oh almost forgot; it tasted heavenly and would work equally as well with other cheeses such as Red Leicester & Cheddar combo minus the nuts.

Mmm..Stilton is one of my fave cheeses.  This would be gone in 10 minutes if in my home.
