This week I want to show you a recipe for blue cheese lovers. Specifically Cabrales. This cheese of three types of milk (goat, cow and sheep) is matured in the Caves of Cabrales, (Asturias Region), where the humidity and temperature conditions are optimal for its maturation. It has become internationally famous for the quality of its natural eatable bacterial (Penicillium) infiltration and especially for its balanced flavour. The small production of this cheese is protected by the Cabrales Designation of Origin, this makes it a very careful product throughout its production chain. Starting with the pastures where the animals are fed in semi-liberty, down to the last detail in their maturation and sale.
There are many ways to use Cabrales cheese in the kitchen, for example in Salads or accompanied by quince, fruit and nuts.
Today in homage to my beloved Asturias, I have made a very easy recipe that everyone likes. Well everyone who likes blue cheese. Because as in many things, Cabrales blue cheese either you love it or you hate it.
So I did a sauce with the blue cheese to accompanied nice fillets of Veal flank from this region.
For the Cabrales sauce.
We start with the sauce, you will see how easy.
I hope you like this recipe with its pure Asturian flavour. If you are lucky enough to be able to accompany it with a glass of cider, you will travel for a moment to this beautiful region.
Love for the product, take care of the technique, elegant execution, and above all, nature and environment respect, are my values as a professional.

Christmas is approaching, and many people are considering what food to prepare for these special days to surprise and make their guests happy. And sometimes we are grateful for some ideas to cook a different healthy dish.
This week I return to the north of Spain to bring you another of its star recipes. This traditional dish, with countless versions, has been modified over time depending on each country's and region's typical products until it became what it is today.
This week I bring you one of my favourite traditional sweets. It is a fried dough ball made with flour, eggs, water, milk and butter, usually filled with whipped cream, custard, chocolate ganache or other creams or jams.
