Spain, Goat, blue, Soft.
Queso Cabrales is a natural cheese made in the artisan tradition by rural dairy
farmers. This cheese can be made of pure cow's milk, but, depending on availability,
can also be blended with some goat and/or sheep's milk as well. All the milk
used in its production must come exclusively from herds raised in a small zone
of production in northern Spain.
Cabrales is aged from two to six months in natural caves in the mountains nearby.
In these caves, the relative humidity is 90% and the temperature varies between
45 and 55F.
These conditions favor the development of penicillium molds, yielding veins
of blue-greenish color.
Unlike its cousins - Danish Bleu and French Camembert - the blue mold is not
artificially injected. It occurs naturally. Cabrales is sharp and tangy, and
even more so when made with mixed milks. Like Gorgonzola and Roquefort, it is
a famous blue cheese whose name is often copied by inferior wannabees.
Note: Contrary to popular belief, authentic Cabrales is wrapped in aluminum
foil, not leaves. Spanish blue cheese wrapped in leaves is either called Valdeon
