Cheese revolution is happening in Spain, and we’re verry happy to be here to see it! Interest in artisan cheese is growing and not only a whole new generation of neo-artisan cheesemakers is researching the life fermented, new shops are opening all over the country.
One of the first to open in Galicia was Queixería Praza do Campo in Lugo, in September 2014.
Alberte Pérez looks after his cheese-treasure vault filled with artesan cheese, from Galicia, Spain and other countries. The key here is the information you’re given about each and every cheese: the kind of milk, who makes it, the company, where. You can taste it before you buy it of course, and it’s cut just for you on the spot. You can find from day-fresh Galician cheese to stinky aged Stichelton, and most of all Alberte’s recommendations will help you find the cheese you needed in your life. You’ll also find natural yoghurts and butter.
A room at the back has been recently opened for tastings and classes.
Prices range from cheap to fair, considering its quality.
