The Alisios is a trade wind that blows through the Canary Island of Fuerteventura, and it’s a fitting name for this cheese, because enjoying it is a breeze. It’s made from the mixed milk of Canary Island cows and goats and coated in sweet pimentón, the pepper from which paprika is derived. What results is a highly, highly snackable cheese with toasted notes in the paste and a spicy-sweet pop from the outer coat. It’s fully and creamy from the cow’s milk and zingy and zippy from the goat’s. No wonder it took home the Super Gold at the 2016 World Cheese Awards. The Alisios will blow you over with flavor.
