Nalas - Campaig

The recently announced, “Castilla y León 2010 Campaign” began on May 15 in the town of Green Bay, WI. As hosts for the opening of the campaign, we had the collaboration of our friends and partners, Nalas Fromagerie, cheese experts that made known our products to their loyal clients. Entering Nalas, as they define themselves, transports you into the atmosphere of a small village in southern France, but with the personal touch and extensive culinary culture of our neighbors from the state of cheese, Wisconsin.


Nalas Fromagerie.Last weekend, Solex team members  representatives from the government of Castilla y León and our friends from Nalas, crossed the Pyrenees to settle in central Spain between castles, pigs and artisan cheese producers. In this village in southern Europe, we tasted products like: the best manchego cheese (Senorio de Montelarreina), the robust Zamorano D.O. and “for which to me is being the rookie of the year in USA”, the Covadonga blue cheese, is a blended and fresh cheese on which we will elaborate soon (it deserves an exclusive post!).


.As a perfect compliments to a tasting on a retailer specializing in cheeses, the Marcona Almonds, the Quince Paste and Tortas (Cheese accompaiments) allowed us to experiment with new combinations and complementary flavors … preferred by our customer, are: Manchego cheese with Marcona Almonds and Blue Covadonga with our olives (good ideas for your menus and shelves!).


.By late afternoon, we returned to Chicago even with the taste in our mouths of the Spanish bite, grateful to our partners of Nalas (Allan, Dotty, Pablo …) and satisfied to see their clients with bags full of Solex products ready to enjoy their bit of Spain at home with loved ones.Nalas Fromagerie
