Cabrales Cheese




Also known as Quesu Cabrales or Cabraliego, this is one of the most important blue cheeses in the world. It is made with cow's milk or with goat and sheep's milk, which is more highly valued.

Its name comes from the Asturian town where it has been made since time immemorial. With a strong flavour and penetrating smell, it is a fatty cheese, with a natural rind, produced normally with a mix of raw cow's, goat's and sheep's milk. It is aged in natural mountain caves at a temperature of between 8º and 12º for between two and four months. These conditions favour the penicillium mould, which creates the characteristic bluish-green streaks. In addition to being eaten alone, it is highly valued as a base for sauces and for accompanying many haute cuisine dishes. It has been protected by a Denomination of Origin since 1981.
