There are many different types of cheese produced in Spain but Manchego Cheese is the most famous with a long history and tradition. It is made from the sheep’s milk of the Manchego breed in the La Mancha region of Spain just south of Madrid, which is known for its high plateau landscape and extremes of temperature. The cheese is usually aged between 60 days and two years and has a firm and compact consistency with a buttery texture. Its distinguished flavor is well developed but not too strong, creamy with a slight sharp taste, and leaves an aftertaste that is typical of sheep’s milk. Enjoy this particular cheese with some Jamon Serrano, Spanish Chorizo, Olives and a glass of red wine!
