Caramel coloured with a golden interior and tiny eye, San Simon is a smoked cow’s milk cheese from Galicia in the shape of a teardrop. The subtle smoked flavour comes from ageing the cheese on birch wood. The distinct smoke flavour permeates the moist, malleable paste that finishes creamy and luscious. Only four producers make this cheese in Spain. Used for creams, sauces, textures, desserts, jellies, foams and cheeses boards.
Goes well with fruity white or rosé wines.
Semi-cured cheese with a mild flavor, with milky notes and a pleasant taste of nuts and butter. After taste and great smell of birch smoke.
