Our Featured Sheep's Milk Gourmet Cheese
Picture of romao cheese
Romao or queso al romero in Spanish which means cheese with rosemary, is an artisanal sheep's milk cheese from La Mancha in Spain. This aged gourmet cheese is related to the Manchego cheese. Romao is hand-rubbed with oil (lard) and fresh rosemary and aged in caves for 8 months. The oil and rosemary permeates the cheese and complements its full flavor. The result is a firm chewy cheese with a complex flavor with a finish of rosemary. When cut, you will recognize the Manchego and you will instantly smell the rich aroma of the rosemary. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. read more...
