NOtaBLE’s Stilton Cheese Cake

About a year ago we (Culinary Calgary) visited NOtaBLE in the Bowness area. Wow! That was absolutely one of the best food I ever ate. We had a beautiful salad with Gouda cheese as a starter. I love cheese and of course as a Dutchie I love my Gouda. This was a Sylvan star Gouda and although I buy my cheese from the Dutch Cash and Carry, the Sylvan star is a good cheese and it was lovely with the greens and the vinegar.

We had chicken as an entree and we all were flabbegastered about the yumminess of the chicken. I don’t know what chef Noble does with his chicken but it must be something magical because I have never been able to serve roasted chicken that is as good as he put it on my plate. Our dessert was something I thought I would not like. I am not a fan of cheesecakes, I don’t like the feeling of the sweet cheesyness in my mouth. But Chef Noble completely surprised me; I ate the whole thing! My hubby, always hoping for the leftovers on my plate, was evenly surprised, or must I say disappointed?

Last October I tried to make this Stilton Cheesecake myself. I did not look as good as the one Chef Noble and his team prepared, but it was still a great taste. I did brulee the cake as I find it gives the crunch and sweetiness that made the cheesecake so special.
