Peñanevada cheese

Peñanevada is a soft, mild, artisan cheese made from pasteurised cows' milk by Jesús Calzón García at his Valle de Narcea dairy in Tineo, Asturias.

Of the Camembert type, the cheese has a bloomy white rind with a soft, but firm, deep ivory-yellow interior. It has no holes and is not sticky. It has an elastic and very creamy texture with a clean aroma with hints of fresh herbs, fruit and walnuts. With a mild, creamy, complex flavour, the cheese has just the right amount of saltiness.
