We had to take into account the time difference to know the results of the World Cheese Awards 2016.
Despite the fact that the show was held in San Sebastian this year, the results, as they advance on their website, have not been known until 10AM (British timezone).
La Antigua in the World´s Cheese Awards 2016
The best thing about the show being held in Spain was that we were able to take a walk among all the cheeses that were presented to this world-wide competition, to the World Cheese Awards 2016, and by chance we found two of our cheeses and … surprise! They had a bronze medal each: La Antigua Añejo and La Antigua Cured without Lactose.
But it has not been until today that the official lists have been published when we have known the third medal, for our cheese La Antigua Cremoso, that yesterday in our walk we looked for but we did not find anywhere.
They were 3 days surrounded by the best cheese producers from around the world, learning and enjoying it with them, but also new export trading opportunities have emerged as this international competition welcomes companies from all over the world interested in cheese (obviously).
And returning to the medals, let us tell you a little more of the three prizes we have brought with us. The characteristics of each one are already in our website, but… have you tried to strangle our La Antigua Añejo cheese instead of cutting it in wedges? The taste has nothing to do, as we have said in previous occasions, but is that in this cheese the difference is especially noticeable. Try to taste it in the mouth like a candy … and let us know how it went.
About the Old Cured cheese Without Lactose our customers usually tell us that one does not notice the difference of flavor with our Cured with lactose. And it is true, it is the maturation process that manages to keep all the flavors of this cheese, despite belonging to our new family of lactose-free cheeses.
And what could we tell you that you do not already know about our favorite Cream Cheese (Spreadable Sheep Cheese La Antigua), many insist on saying that it is like the famous Torta del Casar, but as soon as they taste the first bite, they notice the difference of flavor and just like happens with a famous brand of potatoes, they can not eat just one!!.
There is no doubt that the jury knows well what they have in their hands, because they have rewarded three of the Jewels of La Antigua, three authentic Jewels of Gastronomy that brought to Fuentesaúco three bronze medals of the World Cheese Awards 2016 to add to our list of Awards.
