1.2 Pound Wheel - Artisan Blue Cheese from Asturias

All Natural

$41.95 CS-42

Qty:

  • Cave-aged in the mountains of Asturias
  • Super artisan from the village of Cabrales
  • Piquant and flavorful blue veining

Cabrales blue cheese is slowly aged in the caves near the Cantabrian Sea, under cold, very humid conditions.

Cabrales is all-natural and truly artisanal. The cheeses are turned by hand periodically until the paste has been completely grown with natural mold. This produces a deep blue veining in a thick texture with the characteristic creamy and piquant flavor.

It is produced only in the village of Cabrales and two other hamlets of the Peñamellera Alta Township on the northern spur of the rugged Picos de Europa in eastern Asturias.

The blue mold comes from the sides of the oceanside caves. It is not artificially injected, as is the case of its cousins - Danish Bleu and French Camembert.

There are only limited quantities available because the cheese makers use traditional farmhouse methods, in small family-run dairies of the township.

Raw milk, mainly cow's milk, is used to produce it. However, as most farmers keep mixed herds, blends of goat and ewe's milk are used in the spring and summer.

Ingredients

Goat and ewe's raw milk, rennet and salt.

"I love this cheese however, the one I got from Tienda was extremely dry and crusty completely devoid of creaminess. Also having to buy a whole wheel (instead of half for example)and then finding that it is not right it was disappointing having to throw away parts of it."

"This was by far the best blue I've ever tasted - and it's from my grandfather's region, bringing back memories in addition to fab flavor. I look forward to purchasing again."

"Simply the best blue you can find. Not for the faint of heart."

"Full, balanced, spicy, creamy artisanal with all the flavour of Asturian mountains on it, Cabrales is close to "blue" perfection . For those who find it to strong, I recomend to maridate Cabrales with the refreshing and acid regional cider... and to keep on tasting it, you just have to get used to all this power to really appreciate it. As they say in Asturies "ye un quesu de campanilles" (ie un kesoo the kampanies). One of the best cheeses form Spain. Outstanding."

"Cabrales is the most powerful(and flavorful)of the blue cheeses and therefore should be eaten with that in mind. This cheese is worth every penny."

"Even though we like "Blues", we felt this was a little to strong. Needs more "richness" in the flavor."

May we suggest?
