THOUSANDS OF YEARS IN THE MAKING OF MANCHEGO CHEESE

Manchego Cheese www.themanchegocheese.comManchego is one of the world’s cheeses with the most valuable history and heritage. That’s a well-known fact.

But, did you know that Pre-Historic men and women already enjoyed the pleasures of fine Manchego cheese?

Yes, as locals tell me, archeological remains dating back to the Bronze age show that the inhabitants of La Mancha used to make a sheep’s milk cheese with the milk of a race of sheep that’s considered the ancestor of our modern Manchega sheep. Weren’t they clever!

Of course, we don’t know what methods our ancestors used to make this natural product, but we could assume that their cheese tasted very much like ours, and that their cheesemaking methods were most probably similar too.

Next time you queue up to buy your Manchego think about those cave men & women who were already in the know. When a little pleasure survives the turn of so many centuries it must mean it’s worth passing it on!
