In 2016,the husband and wife team behind Quesos y Besos (cheeses & kisses) quit their day jobs, and decided to move back to their home town of Guarromán, on the out skirts of Sierra Morena ( Sierra sur de Jaen) to bring up their children and start making cheese. Coming from a long line of shepherds this should have come naturally to them. However, like all visionaries they didn’t want to do any thing the easy way and so, as opposed to making the traditional cheese of the region, they decided they wanted to make a lactic cheese. This is probably the oldest form of fermentation as it relies on bacteria to break down the lactose in the milk into lactic acid. Using milk from their own herd of Malagueña goats which roam freely in the local area, able to graze on numerous wild flowers and herbs
Made from the pasteurised milk of Malagueña goats, this ‘Camembert-like’ cheese is matured for 60 days to ensure it has a wonderful depth of flavour. The rind is perfectly edible and lends a bit of texture to this semi-soft cheese. It presents an off white in colour and is molded seductively in Quesos y Besos’s trademark lip shape. Soft on the palate with a light buttery flavour, your palate is consumed with floral and nutty notes as the animal’s complex diet is reflected in the taste of the milk. This comes attractively packaged in a wooden box with faux straw.
