product description

The peculiar form of the Mahon-Menorca cheese, square base and rounded edges, has an artisan origin, the handmade knotted cotton fabric or fogasser, used as a mold for compacting and pressing the curd.

A cheese with a direct milk flavour, concise and very characteristic, slightly spicy and very aromatic and persistent aftertaste, which denotes the intensity and control of its ripening development. Ideal matching with white wines, very fresh and lively with a touch wooden flavour to soften the sharpness of the cheese, or a good cava brut, served chilled, not too dry, with flavours of ripe fruits and compote.

The gastronomic and culinary use of this cheese is vast as evidenced by the local recipes, the cheese is used in many dishes because of its intense and powerful flavour.
