Back to Sheep

Torta Del Casar PDO

 

Description

Delicious and pungent cheese from Extremadura in Spain made from raw sheep’s milk and vegetable – based rennet which gives it its unusual taste. The cheese has a semi-solid lid but a soft texture at room temperatura for dipping. It won a bronze medal in the 2019 World Cheese Awards.

Great to decorate a cheese platter and goes particularly well with strong flavours such as meats, anchovies, or in sauces or on pizzas even! Very enjoyable too with breadsticks as a dip/ tapa to share, or to spread on bread.

 

Pairing

A cheese which combines especially well with cava or champagne.

 

Sensorial

Strong, pungent smell, small eyes and strong, slightly bitter taste.
