Spain, the other cheese country
But Spain has always been a country with a great cheese-making tradition, especially with its soft cheeses.
Cheese is made all over Spain, from Barcelona to Bilbao, Seville and Valencia.
Barcelona and its region Catalonia is an important region, having created over 200 new artisan dairies.
It’s clear that the climate brings a little extra to the cheese, and the Mediterranean here brings many nuances to the milk – it’s fatter, with more protein.
In Asturias, a region with centuries of cheese-making history, cheeses are at their tastiest, and we can find some wonderful cheeses in Gijón.
