Treat yourself to the best cheeses from Spain’s rural producers and discover a whole new world of flavour and texture, ranging from crumbly and tangy to blue and creamy.
Since moving to Barcelona from the UK all those years ago, my diet has morphed beyond all recognition. Though I’ll never renounce my tea and toast breakfast ritual, the hearty pies and roast dinners have been replaced with a few select staples: bread (oven warm), olives, jamón and cheese.
This is what I eat as a snack, for lunch and dinner, whether I want to treat myself or even if I need to tighten up the purse-strings. And believe me, once you’ve sampled the handcrafted produce of Formatgeria La Seu, you’ll want to do the same.
And for the more adventurous epicurean, the seductive goat cheese ice-creams are just the ticket.
