Traditional, farmhouse and creamery, semi-soft cheese is made from cow's milk in the region of Galicia, northwest of Spain. The cheese has a pear shape with glossy texture which is named after San Simon de la Cuesta in the northwest of Spain. San Simon cheese is delicious in taste and creamy buttery in texture. The rind colour varies from orange to reddish-brown. While preparing San Simon, it is lightly pressed and then smoked, which gives a woody taste. It is slightly acidic in nature.
