So, what is manchego cheese?

Manchego cheese is a popular Spanish cheese made from the milk of the Manchega sheep breed. This cheese has a firm texture and a rich, nutty flavor that is slightly tangy and sharp. It has a distinct crisscross pattern on its rind, which is a result of the traditional pressing process. Manchego cheese is aged for a minimum of two months, but can be aged for up to two years, resulting in varying levels of sharpness and complexity. This versatile cheese can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads to sandwiches, and is a staple ingredient in many Spanish recipes.
