good food + awesome travel & occasional odd bits

Larte Cheese

In a small town called Berastegui, not far from San Seb, there are rolling green hills,  farms, and lots of sheep grazing the countryside. It’s another world. A quiet and peaceful place.

 

We were fortunate to have the opportunity to  visit a wonderful artisan cheesemaker who was the 2010 Idiazabal gold medal winner. Arantxa makes three types of  cheese: traditional Idiazabal, smoked, and aged. One taste of any of Larte’s cheeses and it’s clear that they are simply the best. Each flavor is  fantastic, but my personal favorite was the smoked version.
