Valdeon is a famous blue cheese matured in the Valdeon valley in the beautiful Picos de Europa mountains. This mountain range is in the north-west of Spain in the Castilla y Leon region. The cheese is made throughout the seasons using a mixture of cow and goat milk and has a dense blue veining. Valdeon is a bold cheese – its unique features stem from the artisan production processes, which include long and traditional maturation in cold, damp mountain caves. Valdeon has a soft, granular texture and pale colour. Turning darker as it ages, the cheese is punctuated with small cavities filled with blue veins. It is covered by a coarse, inconsistent rind that is wrapped in maple leaves. Valdeon possesses a spicy taste akin to Roquefort but less salty. As a powerful smelling cheese, Valdeon is also perfect for use in blue cheese sauces. The rich smell of the cheese makes a good accompaniment for fresh fruit, red wine or sherry.
