Cheese: Castelo Branco

Castelo Branco

Castelo Branco

Castelo Branco (Portuguese: Queijo de Castelo Branco) is a cheese named after the city of the same name in Portugal, the chief city of the district where it is produced. The cheese is made from milk produced by either a goat or a ewe, and has a soft texture. Typically, the cheese takes 40 days to mature when made with goat’s milk, and 50 days when made with ewe’s milk. The fat content is around 45% and the cheese is usually a close-to-white color.
