Queijo da Serra

Queijo da Serra. Portugal is a country of delicious cheeses or queijos in Portuguese. The most famous of those is the creamy yellow queijo da serra. It is made from sheep’s milk and the ingredient that makes it unique, the thistle flower. Produced only in the region of the Estrela mountains, in the north-central part of the country, it is served in many of Lisbon’s finer restaurants. Queijo da serra hardens as it ages but is surely a delight in any age or circumstance.
