Golden Flees - Saffron Infused
by Quesos la Aldea. Product of Spain.
A unique Manchego-style artisan cheese with delicately floral saffron threads throughout the paste. Aged 4 months and made with microbial rennet, it is smooth and buttery with a touch of acidity and saffron in the finish. Cheesemaker Antonio Poves grew up in a small town in Castilla La Mancha with his four siblings, surrounded by agriculture, herds of sheep, and cheesemaking. After 16 years working in the cheese industry, he decided to take a leap of faith and build his own dairy, which makes artisanal sheep, goat, and mixed milk cheeses.
It is situated in the province of Cuenca in the heart of Manchego country.
Ingredients: pasteurized Manchega sheep's milk, cheese cultures, calcium chloride, microbial rennet, salt, saffron.
