Torta de Barros
£7.55 – £55.70
Torta de Barros is a cheese experience not to be missed!
There is a centuries-old tradition in south-west Spain, and over the border in Portugal, of making ewes’ milk cheeses using cardoon thistle rennet, resulting in distinctly flavoured cheeses with a soft, sometimes even liquid interior.
Queserías de Torta de Barros make an outstanding example using rich raw milk of the indigenous Merino sheep and vegetarian cardoon thistle rennet. The cheese has a slightly sour yet pleasant aroma and the soft paste is rich, salty and full-on with a hint of bitterness on the finish.
