Majorero cheese is also known as Queso Fuerteventura since it is made from the unpasteurized milk of Majorera goats on the island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. This semi-hard cheese with nutty and milky flavour has been granted the PDO (Protected Designation of origin) certification. The pale white coloured cheese is creamy, buttery and a little gummy in texture with an acidic taste. When aged, it develops a dark-coloured rind that is rubbed with pimenta, roasted gofio, or oil, giving it different textures and tastes.
The cheese can be served as a snacking cheese or a dessert cheese. It goes well with pasta, fruits and vegetables.
