“OSO” – Raw cow’s milk

Oso because it’s a cheese gustOSO (tasty), cremOSO (creamy), sofficiOSO (fluffy), burrOSO (buttery), appetitOSO (tempting), morbidOSO (soft)… made according to our recipe, this cheese is very pleasant to eat, easy to appreciate and suitable for all seasons.

Made from whole raw cow’s milk, the curd is broken down to a walnut size, then left to mature for at least 40 days, but sometimes even longer. Although it is a fairly young cheese, it expresses complex scents, as do much more mature cheeses.

If the rind is clean, it is edible, but since it is a cheese that after a short time is subject to remake of mould, in case it is very moulded, it is better not to eat it, not because it is dangerous for the health, but because it alters the organoleptic characteristics of this cheese.
