If there's one cheese from Spain every foodie should try, it's Manchego. This cheese is Spain's most popular, accounting for over a third of the country's traditional cheese production. Its rich yet approachable flavor has made it one of the most demanded cheeses on American cheese plates.
This version is a young Manchego, aged for only 3 months. It's flavor is still buttery and nutty, but has more lemony tang than older versions, and a softer semi-firm texture.
Truly scrumptious, this cheese can be used like a table cheese: keep a hunk in the fridge or on the kitchen table, and let folks nibble on it, or use for cooking, as an ingredient or just grated on top before serving. A must-try.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound and you can purchase an entire wheel of approximately 7 pounds.
We also have a cute Baby Manchego. Same age, same cheese, only in a 14.7 oz. wheel.
Ingredients:pasteurized 'Manchega' sheep's milk, salt, rennet, cheese cultures and calcium chloride. Preserving agent: egg lysozyme (from egg whites). Rind colorings: caramel.
