Homemade Blue Cheese Dip is so easy to make. It's definitely tastier than store bought! Plus you get to control how sharp or strong you want the blue cheese flavor to be. Some people spell it Bleu Cheese Dip, I just spell it delicious, trust me!
Don't let the name scare you, blue cheese is a sharp and salty cheese with a distinct strong aroma. You either love it or hate it, but you can develop your love for the flavor. It's thought that Blue Cheese was discovered by accident when cheese was left in a cave, forming mold. I'm not sure why they thought it would be a good idea to eat moldy cheese, but that's how Roquefort was discovered. If you're new to it, just start by adding a little bit at at time to develop your taste buds for it.

Are Blue Cheese and Gorgonzola the same?
There are many different types of Blue Cheeses which names are protected, depending on the region of Europe they came from. Gorgonzola is an Italian Blue Cheese, from Gorgonzola, Milan. Blue Stilton is from English origin. Danablu, known as Danish Blue is from Denmark.
The most famous is Roquefort, which are cheese that are aged in caves in the south of France. Cabrales is a Spain's contribution to Blue Cheese. All other Blue Cheeses are simply known as Blue Cheese. It's kind of like Champagne is only from France.
Which Blue Cheese for Dip?
This depends on your personal choice. Some Blue Cheeses are stronger in flavor and crumblier, and others are milder and creamier. Roquefort and Blue Stilton are the strongest in flavor, and likely cost the most as well as they are imported. So I just use whatever Blue Cheese is on sale, and adjust more or less to the Blue Cheese Dip recipe as per my taste.
Blue Cheese Newbie?
Not everyone loves Blue Cheese, it may take some time to develop your palate for this cheese. The best part of making blue cheese sauces is that you control how much cheese you put into the dip. If unsure, I recommend to start with a tablespoon of crumbled blue cheese, mix, taste and adjust. Over time, I promise you will want to add more and more! If you love Blue Cheese, then you will likely add more than the recipes requires.
