A mild and creamy organic sheep’s milk cheese. Manchego has delectable buttery flavour with a lingering, piquant aftertaste. It comes from Finca Fuentillezjos, a 300-hectare farm in Spain where Manchega ewes graze in steep, sunny pastures. The cheese is aged for a minimum of 2 months to reach peak flavour.

Cooking

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.

Storage

Keep in the fridge for up to 14 days.

Please tell us where to leave this product if you are not in – it needs to be kept chilled to maintain its quality. A cool box in a shady spot works well.
