Do you like cheese? We do, and we eat all kinds. One of our most favorite is Manchego. Apparently it's the most popular Spanish cheese made. We did not know this until recently. It typically comes aged 3 months, 6 months or 1 year. All are good. The taste gets a little sharper as it gets older. Don't be one of the sad souls that only know the pleasure of cheddar and Monteray Jack. Get yourself some Manchego and some good crackers and indulge a little. Anyone else have a recommendation?
I like a room temprature Havarti on a neutral cracker like "Stoned Wheat Thins". Probably not as sharp as this cheese though.
I am surprised that it melts under normal bread grilling conditions, perhaps it requires the nuclear option?Post a Comment
