What is it? The most famous Spanish blue cheese from Valdeon in the Picos de Europa. A strong aroma and potent flavour make this one of the world's classic blue cheeses. It is recommended for salads, sauces, or just spreading on bread. Try with caramelised fig and quince preserve or a slice of membrillo.
