Here’s a recipe for butternut squash, leek and blue cheese risotto that will surely warm the cockles on a cold winter’s evening. Nigel Slater has a recipe for pancetta and blue cheese risotto that I made once; it was really tasty but unfortunately so salty that I could only eat a couple of mouthfuls at a time. Here, the butternut squash and leek flavours are both mild and sweet and complement the blue cheese brilliantly. I used Stilton but you could use any blue cheese. Gorgonzola would make it a little more authentically Italian! A squeeze of lemon juice at the end finishes it off nicely.

Carrying on this month’s soup theme, we have broccoli and Stilton soup. Of course you can use any blue cheese you like, or omit it altogether for a milder soup. The amount of Stilton in this recipe though is not overwhelming and it by no means overpowers the other flavours. If you really like blue cheese, crumble a bit more on top to serve.
