I thought I had missed this! Somewhere in my muddled mind I almost remembered I’d been invited to a lovely tasting of Mahon cheeses at the lovely Antigua Abacería San Lorenzo, and I even had it in my calendar for today. But yesterday on Twitter I saw that the tasting was underway and just chalked it up to me having no brain any more. But then, since I hadn’t been back to the Abacería in ages it seemed like a good idea to pop over for lunch, reckoning a Monday wouldn’t be too busy. So imagine my surprise when I showed up and Ramón ushered me upstairs and… there was cheese everywhere!
Turned out that yesterday’s event was the public promotion for Quesos La Payesa but today was for journalists, influencers and… me! And it was fabulous. Not just amazing cheese but we were also treated to a very tasty lunch (caesar salad, mushroom risotto, cheesecake) all made with Mahon cheeses. We were offered any wines we wanted and I chose sherries (manzanilla and amontillado). An unexpected pleasure.
