Veigadarte

Producer: Casado Origin: Castilla-Leon, Spain

A rare made-to-order Rogers Collection selection, Veigadarte is a French-style goat milk buche made in Spain.  The cheesemaker, Joaquin Casado, makes this delightful ash rind cheese with milk from his own herd, a mix of two special Spanish breeds, one called “Florida,” and one called “Murciana.” The result is incredibly mouth-coating and luscious, with an earthy, yeasty tang.  Many people hiking Santiago’s way/Camino de Santiago, stop to enjoy these goats and prolifically photograph them.
