This cheese picks up a lightly smoked flavor. Buttery and rich with a nice bite, it’s great to eat in front of the fire, cozied with a blanket and a medium body red wine.

There are many great ways to serve your idiazábal cheese. First, ensure it is at room temperature. You can then add it to a cheese platter (cutting it in triangles vertically along the brine) paired alongside picos artesanos or crusty bread. You can also add your sliced idiazábal cheese to tapa dishes or pintxos, pairing it with jamón serrano, chorizo ibérico or Spanish vegetables. Don't forget to add a nice Spanish wine to your spread!
Refrigerate upon arrival. Keep stored in fridge before and after consuming. Before enjoying your cheese, let it sit outside of cold storage for 30 minutes. If storing your cheese after consuming, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or cloth and place back it back in refrigeration.
