An extremely simple recipe, blending the rich, earthy flavors of Roquefort and whisky together to create an ideal spread for entertaining or snacks. Not for the kiddies. Don’t eat and drive.

Recipe type: Appetizers

This deceptively simple cheese cream from Overscaig in Sutherland is delicious served as a cream pate for the first course or at the end of a meal as a savoury.
