Description

 

Valdeon is a famous blue cheese matured in the Valdeon valley in the beautiful Picos de Europa mountains. This mountain range is in the north-west of Spain in the Castilla y Leon region.

The cheese is made throughout the year, using a mixture of cow and goat milk and has a dense blue veining. Its unique features stem from the artisan production processes, which include long and traditional maturation in cold, damp mountain caves.

Valdeon has a soft, granular texture and pale colour. The cheese is punctuated with small cavities filled with blue veins. It is covered by a coarse rind in dark grey shades. Valdeon possesses a spicy taste akin to Roquefort but less salty.

The rich smell of the cheese makes a good accompaniment for fresh fruit like figs, red wine and Pedro Ximenez sherry. As a powerful cheese, it is also perfect for use in blue cheese sauces.
