Torta del Casar
Torta del Casar is a sheep's milk cheese from the Extremadura region of west central Spain. It has a delightfully creamy, even spreadable texture and rich, intense, and flavorful taste. Its name refers to its "cake"-like shape, akin to a Spanish potato omelet or tortilla. Torta del Casar has a gamey, acidic, and somewhat smoky flavor. When ripe, the wheels of Torta can be sliced, or a hole can be cut in the top and the paste scooped out with a spoon or piece of crusty country bread. Pair this cheese with Syrah or Tempranillo.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
