Manchego is a type of Spanish sheep’s milk cheese. It originates in the La Mancha region of Spain, the same region famous for the fictional character Don Quixote. Manchego cheese is quite firm in texture with a yellowish hue and tiny holes dotted throughout its interior. Its flavor is similar to fête achieves but not quite as salty, with a creamier body and not quite as brittle in texture. Manchego cheese is traditionally eaten with lamb or fish. It also goes very nicely with a red Spanish wine and quince paste. Another traditional weighty it is on garlic-rubbed toasted bread with olive oil and tomato. If you’ve never had Manchego cheese before I recommend serving it with red wine and crackers to enjoy its full flavor. While often difficult to procure in local grocery stores, specialty food stores often carry Manchego cheese and a reasonable price.
