The most famous Spanish blue cheese from Valdeon in the Picos de Europa. A strong aroma and potent flavour make this one of the world's classic blue cheeses.
Vega de Llos Valdeon blue cheese, also comonly known as picos blue cheese is made from a blend of cows and goats milk, sometimes with ewes milk in addition to or instead of the goats milk.
Ripening lasts at least two months for cheeses made from raw milk, and one and a half for those made from pasteurised milk.
Vega de Llos Valdeon cheese has an intense flavour, slightly lactic, salty, piquant and a little spicy-hot. It has a caramelised aroma and buttery texture that melts in the mouth. The beaten cheese has the same aroma and flavor, but the texture is creamy, becoming more so as the temperature rises.
It is recommended for salads, sauces, or just spreading on bread. Try with some Quince Paste
