This small batch cheese is incredibly rich and soft, perfect for spreading on warm baked bread. It is made from cow's milk on the verdant island of Faial in the Azores. Cheesemaker Nuno Caldeira works with his wife Marcia and brother Rui to transform fresh milk from small local farms into this delicious Omorro Amanteigado cheese.

Similar in style to Torta del Casar, this cheese is much milder and approachable. Cut off the top and dip a knife into the gooey soft center for spreading on toast or crackers. It has a rich, creamy texture with a slight tang, and pairs beautifully with fresh fruit, roasted almonds or membrillo. Pair with a crisp Vinho Verde white wine.
