Mahón is one of our favorites, a traditional cheese from the Balearic Island of Menorca. Made from cow’s milk, this aged version has a bright sharpness with a pleasant nutty flavor and a hard texture much like a parmesan.
Traditional Mahón cheese is coated with mild paprika and formed "cushion" shape, traditionally created by wrapping the cheese in a napkin. Cut thin slices, then sprinkle with olive oil, black pepper and tarragon to enjoy it like a Menorcan!
