Day 1003 : Queso de Murcia Pairing

Crafted in the Murcia region of Spain, southeastern Spain to be exact, is Queso de Murcia. Queso de Murcia is crafted with the milk of Murcian goats, the best goat milk producing breed in Spain. This DOP, firm, aged goat's milk cheese is bathed twice in red wine during its aging process providing a deep maroon exterior with a bright white interior. Crisp, grassy, citrusy and milky interior paste goes hand in hand with a rustic floral and fruit forward exterior.

What to pair with this delectable and flavorful cheese?

How about a compote of roasted cherry tomatoes and cranberries? Sweet and tangy, yet juicy and bright -- perfect for the milky lightness of the cheese.

Enjoy on a crisp and crunchy piece of toasted baguette with a brush EVOO and a sprinkling of sea salt.
