A creamy, naturally smoked cheese in the shape of a tear drop from Galicia in north west Spain.
The subtle smoked flavour comes from being naturally smoked with birch wood. The texture is fine, fatty, semi-hard, semi-elastic and dense; it has a creamy yellow colour with a small number of rounded or irregular shaped ‘eyes’ in a variety of sizes, but usually smaller than half a pea.
San Simon is an ideal cheese for melting, goes very well with all kinds of meats and fish, baked or as a dip. Combines well with hazelnuts, walnuts and apples.
Enjoy with white wine or beer.
