1128 Queijo Sao Jorge

1128 Queijo Sao Jorge

This revered cow’s milk cheese dates back to the 15 th century and carries the prestigious Protected Designation of Origin status. Produced exclusively on the island of São Jorge, this firm cheese acquires its distinct sharp almost spicy flavour from the abundant grass on which the cow’s graze. Aged for approximately 7 months, the texture is hard but crumbly. This cheese needs very little adornment and shines on its own accompanied by garnishes to balance out its sharpness, like mild olives, fresh fruit such as grapes or sliced pears and crusty bread.
