Cremositos del Zújar is an incredible artisan sheep's cheese. It has won numerous international and national awards, such as the Special Food of Spain Award for the best cheese in 2019. And this Extremaduran cake is not just any cheese: its artisan production, its careful texture, creaminess and, of course, its unmistakable flavour, will delight cheese lovers.
This handmade cheese requires only Merino sheep's milk, vegetable rennet and salt. The hand and tradition of the authentic Extremaduran cheesemakers produce this delicacy, which won Super Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2018.
It is a very creamy cheese cake, so being able to enjoy its texture is essential. We recommend keeping it for a whole day at room temperature before eating.
However, as it is a cheese with a strong flavour, it is the perfect accompaniment to all kinds of meat, fish and potatoes.
You can also use the cheese as a filling for your dishes. This idea is perfect for some meats that are drier, as it will give them a creaminess and a burst of flavour that will enhance any recipe.
