Spanish cheese can be done at any time of the day
Spanish cheese is eaten at breakfast, at lunch and then a little at dinner. And when that’s all gone, add some cheese for dessert. You can safely call Spain a cheese country.
Big in size, big in cheese
While the Netherlands is relatively small, Spain is a huge country. Even so large that different parts of Spain have different climates. As a result, there is a huge variety of flavors . The cultures are also quite different.
Then there are the Canary and Balearic Islands, Ibiza, Mallorca, Majorca and so on. Goat cheese mainly comes from these islands.
All this diversity is partly due to the fact that so many different types of milk are used to make cheese. Goat’s milk, cow’s milk, sheep’s milk and very often also a mix of these cheeses.
Take for example manchego , perhaps the most famous cheese from this beautiful country. The cheese is certified according to the DOP quality mark . This way you can be sure that your Manchego is a real Spanish sheep’s cheese.
Of course the manchego that you buy at the Hollands Kaashuis is also DOP certified. This cheese has matured for 3 months and combines very well with delicious tapas. The cheese is high in protein and is therefore ideal for a vegetarian diet.
Manchego cheese is lactose free
Because all the milk sugars in this cheese have been converted during ripening, this cheese does not contain lactose (less than 0.1 gram per 100 gram). That’s good news for people who are lactose intolerant.
