From the sunny Canary Islands comes this remarkable cheese. Each bite is firm and rich with a mild, nutty flavor and notes of butter and almonds. The hearty Majorero breed of goats forages the arid countryside eating aromatic plants, such as thyme and rosemary, which lend subtle undertones to the cheese. Serve with a dry Cava or refreshing white wine.

The artisans at Maxorata have earned fame for the cheeses of this tiny island. In fact, this semi-cured version won the award for World’s Best Goat’s Milk Cheese at the prestigious 2018 World Championship Cheese Contest in Wisconsin. We agree with the judges, this beautifully balanced cheese is one of our very favorites.

Majorero goats originated in the Canary Islands (one of Spain’s provinces) and thrive in the harsh, dry landscape of Fuerteventura Island. They wander the open countryside, feeding on wild plants. The resulting milk is rich and flavorful with a complexity you won't find with farm sourced milk.

Maxorata carefully presses the cheese curds into a traditional shape, creating a dense texture with tiny air pockets. Unlike young goat's milk cheese which can be very creamy, Majorero has a medium texture, firm and flexible without being soft or crumbly.

Serve this very special cheese at room temperature with fruit, almonds and a dry white or sparkling wine.
