MITICA San Simon DOP Mitica Cow’s Milk Cheese, Galicia, Spain, 2.5 pound teardrop

$29.27

Product Highlights

Fourth generation cheesemaker Javier and his wife Sonia make this teardrop shaped cheese in the dairy next to their home in Lugo, Galicia. It’s a tiny operation with only four employees, and the care with which they make this award-winning cheese is very apparent. Javier waits until the end of the process to smoke the cheese with birch wood for up to 90 minutes. It develops a lovely caramel colored exterior, a golden interior with tiny eyes and a subtle smoked flavor. Javier says the aroma reminds his customers of a time gone by, when their food was cooked over a wood-fired flame.

The smoky taste blends elegantly with the buttery aroma and taste, while the overall flavor is mild with some salt, a pleasant balance of acitiy, and sweetness in the aftertaste. It is a good melting cheese, works well in rice, pasta, and vegetable dishes, or added to salads. It is also quite delicious with a glass of a young red Valdeorras wine and some peanuts.
