A Galician classic, made traditionally in the countryside even today.
This pressed paste cheese with an unusual shape, similar to a mushroom or a chef's hat, is made in eight places in the southeast of Lugo, always with cow's milk and optionally a little goat's milk. It is medium sizes with a very fine rind and soft, granular, creamy paste that melts in the mouth and is slightly acid. It may be fresh, after maturing for 48 hours, or mature, after a period of two months. In the latter case, the flavour is spicier. It is sold with the label recognised by the Designation of Origin.
