Burgos fresh cheese. Juan Manuel Sanz/©ICEX
Spanish fresh cheese is becoming increasingly popular, partly because it is finding a place in a wide variety of salads and vegetable dishes and partly because of its high nutritional value. In addition to the traditional cheese such as queso de Burgos, a real classic that is widely consumed in Spain, cheesemakers are producing new varieties, many of them made from goats' milk, to keep in line with consumer trends. Amongst the other traditional products that also form part of this sub-category are curds (cuajadas), a delicious dessert made, mostly in northern Spain, from ewes' milk and usually served with honey and nuts.
