This cheese is Apellation of Origen “Queso Manchego”, from La Mancha, Spain. This is a pressed cheese made with sheep milk of the Manchego breed, aged for three months.
Manchego is a very versatile pairing and can be paired with fruits, nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts, crackers, crusty bread, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, fig spread or lightly drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. An aged Manchego can be eaten on its own. Although Manchego can be enjoyed in many ways, it’s worldwide known for it’s central role in traditional Spanish “tapas”. These small, delectable portions of food, served individually or in groups as a designed meal, are more than food, they are a way of life. You can serve the Manchego cheese before, during or after the meal, it is up to you.
