Bountiful Cheese Counter in Madrid.

Bountiful Cheese Counter in Madrid


Thus far on this Cheesy Spanish¬†adventure, we have done and seen a lot of great things. The cheese has certainly been one of the greater things experienced. From traditional Spanish Manchego in Madrid, to savory Edam cheese canvassing a Portuguese dish known as Francesinha, these two countries simply DO NOT lack in cheese. It is bountiful. It is everywhere that you look. There are entire stores and charcuterie houses packed with it. Port salons offer extensive varieties of local port wines and cheeses to pair with them. A little song with the phrase “heaven on earth” keeps playing in my head. It’s an awesome feeling to have written/read about so many cheese varietals (that I thought I would never get a chance to try) and then to be surrounded with them. And, if I might add, the prices are extremely inexpensive. A small wheel of cheese 4in. in diameter will only set you back around 3-4$. (Around 2 or 3‚ā¨ here). So with that little bit, it is time to go and start the day. More cheese beckons, my cholesterol cries out, and Portugal demands discovering. Cheers!
