Queso Idiazábal Wedge
This wedge of queso idiazábal is a wonderful cheese that comes straight from the Basque Country in Northern Spain. Made using strictly sheep's milk (leche oveja), it has a deliciously mellow smokey flavor. This specific wedge won a world cheese award, so it is definitely worth the try.
We love this cheese sliced in triangles or cubed and served alongside cured meats and fruit preserves. Try pairing it with some membrillo to find a delicious balance between the smokey and sweet flavors. Make sure to have a crisp glass of your favorite Spanish red wine on the side.
This cheese is actually name after the village of Idiazábal. As a result, it has received Spanish D.O. (Denominacion de Origen) since 1987.
