What Does Manchego Taste Like?

Spanish Manchego is famous for its intense and lightly nutty flavour. It manages to retain both a salty and sweet taste that is partly responsible for its popularity.

Its texture is smooth and creamy while still being somewhat crumbly, making it distinct in the world of Spanish cheeses. It has an ivory-coloured interior scattered by several small holes. Its savoury taste lingers affably on the palate.

Wondering what to eat with Manchego cheese? Its texture is complemented well by Spanish quince jelly or a slice of fig cake. Those who buy Manchego cheese also often pair it with a refreshing glass of red wine to bring out the flavour.

 

Manchego Cheese Ingredients

What is it that creates the distinctive and mouth-watering Manchego taste? 

You might think that there are many ingredients that go into the making process. However, in fact, very little goes into this Manchego product.

Its ingredients are simply as follows: Raw ewes' milk, animal rennet, lactic ferments, salt and Lysozyme.

This Carpuela Artisan Manchego Cheese PDO is aged for a period of 2 to 4 months and is made from 100% raw milk produced by Manchega sheep, a breed that settled in La Mancha many centuries ago and maintained its purity over time.

 

Manchego Cheese Recipes

There is an abundance of Spanish cheese recipes out there, and thanks to its distinct taste, Manchego features heavily in many of them.

Whether you fancy a hearty meal of shakshuka, perfect for sharing with the family, or a lighter Spanish omelette, Manchego is the perfect finishing ingredient to any dish.

Even a small sprinkle of this cheese is enough to take any meal to the next level! Manchego recipes are designed to make the most of its delicious flavour.

Manchego can also be grated, melted, or simply left on its own as the star of a cheese board. Whatever your taste, you’re sure to enjoy the tangy yet sweet flavour of Manchego!

 

What is Similar to Manchego Cheese?

Looking for a Manchego cheese alternative? You might be wondering what cheese is similar to Manchego.

Since Manchego is a hard sheep’s cheese, products like Spanish Zamorano Cheese will have a similar texture and flavouring.

However, the taste of Manchego is distinct, therefore it will be hard to find the exact flavour in a different product.
