Beef Wellington is a classic British that we’ve spruced up with a wonderful French blue cheese. Fourme d’Ambert AOC is creamy and rich which makes it ideal for a layer in a beef wellington, adding depth of flavour to every mouthful.

This Gorgonzola Pasta Bake has a crusty walnut and bread topping which makes it like a crumble. With added vegetables it’s a great dinner option for the whole family.
