Queijaria Furnense Queijo do Vale with Oregano

Queijaria Furnense Queijo do Vale is a unique culinary experience rooted in the heart of Furnas, Azores. This is a semi-soft cheese with oregano. When you cut into it, a mildly pungent aroma greets your senses, while the dominant flavors are buttery and lactic, complemented by an intriguing sour note.

The secret to its distinctive taste lies in the brining process, where the cheese is soaked in, agua azedo, "sour water" collected from Furnas' volcanic springs. These mineral-rich waters lend the cheese its signature aroma and sour flavor, capturing the essence of Furnas.
