Azeitão Cheese is one of the greatest gastronomic specialities of the Lisbon region. Its protected designation of origin status ensures that only the traditional curing process is used with milk from the region’s sheep to produce this small and rich-smelling cheese with a soft centre and unmistakable taste. Try it with bread or crackers as a starter, as a snack at any time of the day, or as a dessert accompanied with jam. Truly unique, it should be eaten with a glass of good wine and preferably on colder days in Lisbon. Don’t forget to give it a try.
