Do the names La Peral, Afuega’l pitu, Cabrales, Gamonedo and Los Beyos sound familiar? Well they should, especially for any professed cheese lover like myself.

These are just a few of the most acclaimed and well-known cheeses from the northern Spanish region of Asturias, an area characterized by the peaks and valleys of the Picos de Europa mountains and its lush coastline.

It is also a place known for its wonderful dairy, as evidenced by the more than 100 different cheeses to come out of this stunningly picturesque area.
