MITICA Mahon, aged 4 mo., Cow’s Milk Cheese, Menorca, Spain, 6oz. wedge

$12.49

Product Highlights

This delicious DOP cow’s milk cheese is from Menorca in the Balearic Islands. The milk for this cheese is thermalized, not pasteurized. This four-month-aged cheese is pale yellow in color with numerous eyes and has a characteristic orange rind. The color of the rind is not created by bacteria but instead by rubbing butter, paprika, and olive oil into the rind as the cheese ages to enhance its appearance and prevent any mold growth.

The cheese is creamy with a nutty finish and is quite versatile in the kitchen. It is traditionally served as an appetizer drizzled with olive oil, and topped with a sprig of fresh rosemary. However, it is also used in many famous recipes from the Spanish omelet, to tapas, pastries, and more.
