Ombra

Ombra by Mitica is a Spanish sheep’s milk cheese that tastes like no other. This cheese is full of milkiness and integrated salt to start and finishes with butterscotch and citrus notes. Many compare Ombra to a Parmigiano made with sheep’s milk though the texture is much more tender.

Cheesemakers age Ombra for four months in a small wheel format that creates a gray rind and allows the cheese to quickly develop crystallization. When warmed to room temperature, the cheese will have a soft texture at the end of a bite. Combine that with the crunch from the small protein crystals and a unique cheese tasting experience is born.

Ombra is produced at the Fromatges Can Pujol located just 5 miles from the Mediterranean Sea where locals know the cheese as Ros. Master Cheesemaker Josep Cuixat has produced this sheep’s milk cheese since the early 1990s, so he’s had plenty of time to perfect his unique recipe.

The first option is to eat Ombra on its own. The unique flavors position it to be featured as a highlight on any cheese board. Charcuterie is huge in Catalonia where this flavorful cheese originates, so add it to any charcuterie board to jazz up the flavor with your meat selection. It works well shaved over salads and with fresh, toasted bread.

Mitica, one of the largest providers of Mediterranean born foods in the world, imports Ombra from Spain. Consistently, their team travels through Europe to meet with suppliers to ensure the highest quality and standards. Every year, they discover new, fantastic products through their cultivation of decades-long relationships with local producers in the Mediterranean. Ombra by Mitica is yet another quality product on their long list of fine foods.
