The pudding-like paste of the Torta del Casar is so gooey, you’ll need a spoon to enjoy it properly. Made from raw sheep’s milk, it develops a semi-firm outer crust. Its aroma—sweet honey mixed with a distinct vegetal funkiness—will get your mouth watering. Buttery notes, roasted artichoke, and a hint of brine and bitterness mingle together. It brims with complex flavor. This is a cheese worth savoring, so spoon some onto slices of fresh bread and complement it with a glass of crisp sauvignon blanc.

“If you've every wished you could just eat an entire bowl of cheese, Torta Del Casar is the answer. I like to pair this creamy cheese with a fresh loaf of warm crunchy bread. Sharing it with friends is optional.”

  • The vegetarian rennet used in the Torte del Casar is cardoon, which is a type of thistle. It contributes to the cheese’s complex vegetal notes.
  • Torta del Casar was named for the place in which it originated, Casar de Cáceres. “Torta” means cake—which refers to the small round cake-like shape of the cheese.
  • This cheese is best enjoyed at room temperature, so slice off the top rind, scoop out the paste, and spread on bread or crackers.
  • The production of this cheese was once limited to the end of winter and the beginning of spring, during prime milking season when temperatures were optimal. Now with advancements in the production process, it can be made any time of year.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
