Danish blue

Quick Reference

A blue-veined cheese made, unsurprisingly, in Denmark. It was invented in the early twentieth century as a cheaper alternative to Roquefort, and in the post-Second World War period was very successfully marketed in Britain. Lately, however, it has faced stronger competition from other continental blue cheeses. Its Danish name is Danablu.
