Cabrales cheese is a type of blue cheese that is made in the Kingdom of Asturias (Spain) from the milk of cows, goats, and sheep. Its area of production is limited to the council of Cabrales and some locations in Peñamellera Alta. The cheese's rind is barely present; it has a creamy and soft surface similar to the inside of the cheese. When it is mature, it has a greenish-blue color and the cheese is creamy, with a strong smell. The cheese will be more or less yellow depending on how much cow's milk is used, therefore it generally appears as a rather white color.
Its versatility of use is very broad; from its direct consumption combined with a good red wine or with natural cider as it is consumed in Asturias, even as an accompaniment in more flavorful sauces for meat and fish.
