Warning: Last items in stock!
Authentic red Afuega’l Pitu PDO cheese made especially for Tierra Astur from pasteurised cow’s milk, rennet, lactic ferment, salt and paprika, the ingredient that makes the final colour of the product red.
Cow’s milk from the farms in thirteen municipalities of the central area of Asturias is used in its production, all covered by the Afuega’l Pitu Protected Designation of Origin regulation.
The original shape of this Asturias cheese, reminiscent of a pumpkin, is because sticks were traditionally used in the process of draining.
As with other Asturias cheeses, it is recommended to remove it from the refrigerator about half an hour before serving. This brings the cheese to room temperature to enhance and appreciate the intensity of its flavour.
