This mild and creamy award-winning manchego cheese has a wonderful buttery flavour with a lingering piquant aftertaste. It comes from Finca Fuentillezjos, a 300m hectare farm in the La Mancha area of Spain, and is made using organic milk from the farm’s herd of Manchega ewes which freely roam the sunny pastures. It’s a semi-cured cheese which is aged for a minimum of 2 months to achieve its distinctive flavour.
Traditionally used in tapas, this cheese also melts well making it an ideal choice for stuffing sweet peppers and mushrooms, or for simply grilling on toast until bubbling and golden for a quick and tasty supper.
