Manchego cheese

What is manchego cheese? About the ingredient manchego cheese. Including 10 recipes with manchego cheese, and where to find it.


Manchego  is a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the Manchega breed, which is aged for between 60 days and two years.

Manchego has a firm and compact consistency and a buttery texture, and often contains small, unevenly-distributed air pockets. The colour of the cheese varies from white to ivory-yellow, and the inedible rind from yellow to brownish beige. The cheese has a distinctive flavour, well developed but not too strong, creamy with a slight piquancy, and leaves an aftertaste that is characteristic of sheep’s milk.

Where found

Manchego cheese is usually found in the cheeses section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
