Spanish D.O. (Denominacion de Origen), Idiazabal is a processed cheese made from unpasteurized sheep milk, usually from sheep in the Basque Country and Navarre, Spain.

It has a somewhat smokey flavor, but is usually un-smoked.

The cheese is handmade and covered in a hard, dark brown, inedible rind. It is aged for a few months and develops a nutty, buttery flavor, eaten fresh, often with quince jam. If aged longer, it becomes firm, dry and sharp and can be used for grating.

Tips for savoring all the aroma and flavor of this cheese:
  1. Keep it in a cool, dry place between 4º and 8º C (you can use the lower part of your refrigerator).
  2. Serve it at room temperature.
  3. After cutting the cheese, store it immediately in the refrigerator in a hermetically sealed plastic container along with a piece of dry bread. The bread will absorb moisture and protect the cheese from mold and excessive drying. Replace the bread when it is covered with mold.
  4. I like to build cheese platters with a variety of Spanish Cheeses as Manchego Cheese and Idiazabal Cheese, Iberico or Serrano ham, Chorizo or Spanish olives.
