We generally get a mixed reaction to this recipe by people that haven't tried it, quite reasonably because cheese doesn't seem to be a natural companion to pork. However when cooked properly the reaction of diners has always been very positive. The dish has a richness which can be adjusted by the choice of cheese, a mature cheddar can be used the generous use of a blue cheese will provide a fuller richer taste. Different cheeses will react differently to the cooking process so we can't take every variation into account here. If you would like to suggest a cheese that will add some extra flavour we would be delighted to hear from you.
"Dear Yourcounty Recipes,
I wanted to add my experience to your Pork Chop feature. We have enjoyed pork with apple and cheese for many years, in that time experimenting with dozens of different cheeses, we have now settled on Gorgonzola as the perfect accompaniment, it has a sweet flavour that compliments the meat and fits with the apples, the cooking process creates a delicious rich sauce. Helen and Mary"

An old established pork chop recipe, I've been told you can use pears and perry instead of apples and cider although I've never tried it. We have many other interesting main course recipes in the Kentish Recipe Directory.
