Valdeon BlueSKU: 20105000000
Valdeon is a Spanish blue cheese slightly tamer than its big brother, Cabrales. In fact, it is often sold as Cabrales in the United States because it appeals to a wider range of palates. Valdeon is made in northwestern Spain with cow, sheep and goat's milks and has a very intense blue flavor. The blue in Valdeon is found in small holes throughout the cheese and is not as biting in flavor as Cabrales. It’s a drier, crumbly blue perfect for salads or eating with dried apricots and walnuts. It is wrapped in Sycamore leaves before going to market, which makes it easy to distinguish from Cabrales. For blue cheese lovers, this one deserves a taste.
