Savor the tangy beginning and salty finish of this semi-soft goat cheese from Torres Vedras, Portugal. Flavorful enough to enjoy alone, you can also dress it up by rolling it in herbs or peppercorns and serving the cheese with figs, nuts and red wine. The mild, herbaceous flavor lends itself to pairing well with fresh salads and vegetables such as grilled portabellas or steamed asparagus. This versatile goat cheese even bakes well – pop it in the oven and spread the warm, creamy treat on grilled bread.
Historic Torres Vedras is a sparsely populated Portuguese town bordering the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Palhais originates there and has the same semi-soft, crumbly texture of most cheese from the region. Created with pasteurized goat's milk, it offers just the right combination of salty and sweet.
Portugal enjoys a long tradition of cheese making. Artisans pride themselves on traditional practices with just a hint of modernization. Cheese is an integral part of Portuguese cuisine and the country offers a wide range of exceptional tasting artisanal goat and sheep milk cheeses.
Pasteurized goat's milk, calcium chloride, curdle and preservative (lysozyme proceeding from egg), starter and salt (4%).
