Manchego Cheese

Buttery and springy, tinged with fresh Spanish grasses.

Quick Overview:

Smooth and meltable. The taste of tradition mixed with comfort and pure, simple bliss.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Spain
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Sheep
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Pick any word that one might use to describe cheese. Buttery? Nutty? Grassy? Rich? Yummy? All of these describe Manchego, and it's easy to see why this has been a bestseller at our shops for years.

The Story

Not only rich in flavor, Spain's most popular cheese is rich in history as well. Southern and Central Spain hosted many an ancient dispute over pasture lands between the Christians to the north and the Muslims to the south. Conquered by King Alfonso VI, the Muslims were forced further south, and the region was left in political turmoil. However, because of the discord, the farmers of La Mancha formed cooperatives which made the socioeconomic fabric of the area much stronger.

Usage Tips

You can Manche-go your own way with this one, but it's a sandwich cheese at heart. Melt it on anything and pair with a Rioja Tempranillo or sherry for dessert.
