    Manchego is Spain's most famous cheese. Produced in La Mancha in Central Spain, true Manchego is made from 100% sheep's milk. Cheeses from Spain are commonly made from sheep's milk because most of the territory is rocky and dry; unfriendly to cows but suitable for raising goats and sheep. The abundance of wild herbs on Central Spain's grazing lands gives Manchego a special taste and aroma. Its flavor is zesty and exuberant ,while its texture is firm but not dry. Manchego can be recognized by the zigzag pattern etched into its rind. This is created by the rippled surface of the press used in the manufacture of the cheese. Underneath the inedible rind, the interior is ivory colored with few small holes. Taste Manchego for the first time and you will be surprised at how long the wonderful flavor lingers on your palate. It is an experience you will be drawn back to again and again. Pasteurized sheeps milk.

    I'm a personal chef that just had a great dinner party and this sheep's milk cheese was a perfect hit on the cheese board! It pairs well with most wines and is wonderful dessert cheese. If you are having a Tapas party or a small dinner party, you can cube it, add it to a quiche, or whatever your heart desires...it's simply lovely! Right now it is on sale at Igourmet.com....check it out!! Here is the link! Enjoy! http://www.igourmet.com/search/search.asp?keywords=machego
