International Women's Day

This month, for International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating some of the female cheesemakers that have been integral to Spanish cheesemaking for generations. We’ll be spotlighting some of the female members of the Spanish cheese industry who bring you the cheeses that you know and love at Brindisa. We’ll be putting a few of our favourites onto our cheeseboard this month – the tabla de las queseras. Find details of our cheeseboard below, available throughout March.

Monte Enebro

Tabla de las queseras

Available at every restaurant you’ll find:

1605 Manchego – an unpasteurised ewe’s milk cheese from the land of Don Quixote. With María José at the helm, Sierra la Solana, has always shared responsibilities equally between men and women.

Monte Enebro – you’ll likely have had our fried Monte Enebro with orange blossom honey – but it’s just as good on a cheese board. And given its limited supply we can’t do both at once, so for this month we’ll be letting Raphael Baez’s award-winning goat’s cheese sing for itself on the cheese board. Paloma Baez now heads up the small but powerful team of her late father’s business of whom 70% are female.

Torta de Barros – this is a soft, creamy, rich and salty unpasteurised ewe’s milk cheese using vegetarian thistle rennet with a soft, sometimes liquidinterior. From Cristina Mangas’ management to sisters Agustina and María José overseeing the turning and refining process, Quesería Tierra de Barros is a nearly entirely female run show.
