If you like Canarian cooking you will probably like Canarian cheese too. There are lots of varieties ranging from the softest goat cheese to the ripest, hardest cured cheese. Canarian cheese is bursting with flavor, whichever variety you try.
Canarians enjoy their cheese with cured ham and locally grown olives (and of course a glass of vino!)
You can also make recipes with Canarian cheese, like yummy Canary cheese tarts which uses cheese from the Canarian island of El Hierro.
