Dovedale cheese PDO

The Dovedale Cheese PDO is a full fat, blue veined, white, soft paste cheese.

Production Area
Dovedale Cheese PDO is made in the counties of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire in the East Midlands and Staffordshire in the West Midlands.

Dovedale Cheese PDO is still made in the traditional way exclusively with milk from local farms.


Dovedale Cheese PDO is cylindrical in shape. It is a soft, white, smooth cheese with green veins. It has a creamy, delicate flavour.


Dovedale Cheese PDO must be kept in a cool place and if it is already cut should be suitably wrapped and kept in the refrigerator. It can be eaten just as it is or spread on toasted bread. It is excellent in sandwiches and particularly with bacon. It goes well with dry, full-bodied wines as well as with sweet wines which give a balanced contrast of flavours.
