H4: Storage & Care
To unravel the fullness of Manchego’s flavors, serve it at room temperature.
Optimal storage involves keeping the cheese within its vacuum pack, nestled within the refrigerator’s cool embrace. The consistently cold and stable temperature becomes the guardian of its essence. Once the seal is broken, wrapping the cheese in plastic wrap and storing it in the fridge ensures its enduring freshness.
For a gourmet indulgence, serve Manchego at room temperature. Let its character dance in harmony with a few almonds, the delightful Picos Utreranos, and a selection of Spanish olives.
Manchego cheese is meticulously fashioned from pasteurized sheep’s milk, gently blended with salt, calcium chloride as a firming agent, rennet, lactic ferments, and the preservative lysozyme (derived from egg). Its rind is lovingly adorned with natamycin for preservation, along with plain caramel and annatto norbixin for coloring. Note that while the rind tells a story, it isn’t intended for consumption.
Delight in the timeless essence of Aged 12-Month Manchego Cheese, a legacy of flavor that transcends time and borders.
