There´s an English nursery rhyme that goes like this:
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away!
Well, if Little Miss Muffet had been born in the valley of Ultzama, then she would certainly have been eating a “cuajada”, which is a typical dessert made from sheep´s milk curd.
If you´ve never tried it, you can´t miss the third annual “Day of the Cuajada” which will take place in the village of Auza, Ultzama. On Sunday, 10 June and during the whole morning, you will be able to see how the dessert is made; from the milking of the sheep to the traditional cooking method used to made the final product. On Saturday, various companies which produce this dessert will open their doors to the public and show their installations and the way the product is produced on a wider scale.
There will also be exhibitions of regional dances and old-fashioned farm work. And if that isn´t enough to make your day enjoyable, visit the beautiful surrounding areas of Ultzama like Aralar and Leizaran!
