Maxorata Majorero Cheese
Majorero cheese is also known as Queso Fuerteventura since it is made from unpasteurized milk of Majorera goats on the island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. This semi-hard, firm cheese with nutty and milky flavor has been granted the PDO certification (Protected Designation of origin) in 1996. It was the first goat’s cheese in Spain to obtain the Designation of Origin.
The pale white coloured cheese is creamy, buttery and a little gummy in texture with acidic taste. When aged, it develops a dark coloured rind which is rubbed with pimenta, roasted gofio or with oil giving it different textures and tastes.
The prestige of our product lies in the quality of raw material used, milk from the Majorero goat, a native breed of Fuerteventura with exceptional genetic qualities, and it is carefully prepared with absolute respect for its artisanal tradition.
The cheese can be served as a snacking cheese, a dessert cheese. It also goes well with pasta, fruits and vegetables.
Pasteurised Majorero goat’s milk, milk enzymes, rennet, salt and paprika. Non Edible Rind.
