Detailed Description for San Simon - 2.20 lb Spanish Cheese
Rioja Alta, Penedes, young cabernet.
You can try also with beer.
Surrounded in the west and north by the Atlantic Ocean and mountains from the
Atlantic to the Mediterranean, Galicia has always been a remote region of Spain.
This isolation fostered an ancient cheese culture. Here the Galacia cows graze
on the lush green pastures and bear milk that its people have been making into
cheese for generations in the town of Villalba.
Like Tetilla, San Simon has a slight similarity to the shape of a breast but
more modest people have compared its appearance to that of a dunce cap (bufone)
or the shape of a mountain.
San Simon is aged 2-4 weeks, lightly pressed and then gently smoked for 2 weeks
after leaving the mold. Inside its red, polished brown rind, San Simon has a
creamy, buttery, smoky flavor that ranges from mild to piquant.
San Simon can be enjoyed with fruit and raw vegetables and is also excellent
served with fruity desserts like pies and tarts.
