Rabaçal Cheese (DOP)

Produced in Beira Litoral region, 200 km north of Lisbon, Rabaçal is a cheese weighing about 1 kg, with a white curd, most often served when fresh. You'll find Rabaçal cheeses made from goat's milk or a mixture of milk, but they're only derivatives - though sometimes honorable ones - of the real thing. The geographical area of production includes some areas in the villages of Penela, Alvaiázere, Ansião, Condeixa-a-Nova, Soure and Pombal.
