PERFECT PAIRING #1 – MANCHEGO CHEESE & FIGS

Manchego Cheese & figs  www.themanchegocheese.comManchego cheeses pair extraordinarily well with a wide variety of foods and drinks.

In these series of posts I will share my discoveries about these delightful combos.

Let’s get started with a marriage made in heaven: Manchego & Figs

Not familiar with figs? Although not juicy, the fig is an incredibly luscious fruit, with a delicate aroma and sweet flavour. Figs have an oval or squat pear shape, and thin skin that encloses hundreds of seeds (actually miniature fruits themselves) held in a succulent, softly fibrous red or purple flesh.

If you have never tried figs with Manchego, get yourself to the nearest Whole Foods or other specialty market and buy some. Since fresh figs are only available from August through to early October now it’s the time!

Tomorrow I will be sharing with you a super easy recipe that will make you love this absolute delicacy. So go pick up a fine Manchego cheese and get your figs ready!
