Product details

From the rolling, herb-strewn plains of Extremadura comes this stunning raw sheep’s milk cheese. 
Made with rennet derived from the pistil of the majestic cardoon flower and from the milk of the magnificently woolly merino sheep, it is truly a cheese apart.
To eat, simply slice off the top of the cheese and scoop out the paste, which is velvety rich and as thick as custard. The flavour is layered and complex, with a refreshing yoghurty tartness that balances out funkier fermented tones. The aroma is intense but this belies the exquisite elegance of the cheese inside. To eat over more than one sitting, simply pop the cheese lid back on, wrap the cheese and return it to the fridge. Leave the cotton lace in place, as it helps to ensure that the molten interior doesn’t burst its banks.
