About Sao Jorge

Cheese Facts: milk: cow •  texture: hard •  production: farmhouse, artisanal

Sao Jorge It seems incredible that such a small, out-of-the-way little island in the middle of the Azores produces and exports this spectacular cheese. Sao Jorge cheese is named after the Portuguese island in question - Sao Jorge - where happy, well-fed cows graze on lush pastures alongside the ocean. The cheese itself is cheddar-like, a golden color with a hard (not edible) rind, and an earthy aroma. The flavor is strong, spicy and sharp. This intense cheese is perfect to melt over pizzas or sandwiches! Pair with a Portuguese Port wine.
