Full Product Details
How could one improve or change this Spanish stunner? Leonora is a perennial favorite at ig, so when we sampled Leonora a Fuego, we were quite simply blown by the addition of an extra ingredient. Oscar Fernando Marcos Gonzalez adds a layer of smoky Spanish Pimentón de la Vera (Smoked Paprika) to the outside of the cheese before aging it for 40 days.
Made in Leon, this soft-ripened wonder’s flavor can be split into three phases: it starts out lush and lemony, with flavors of fresh goat’s milk, balancing acidity and richness. Then the slightly smoky flavor of the pimentón comes through, which finishes with a subtle spiciness on the tongue. It exemplifies how Oscar is part of a new generation of cheesemakers that respects traditions but isn't afraid to innovate and expand the definition of what constitutes great Spanish cheese. The myriad levels of texture and taste make this an utterly delicious and fascinating goat’s milk cheese. Serve simply and enjoy with a crisp Albarino.
- Made from pasteurized goat's milk.
- We cut and wrap this item by hand from a 4 lb loaf.
