HOW TO MAKE SURE IT IS MANCHEGO CHEESE- Part 2

QUESO_VALDEPENAS-216Now you know how to ensure you’re buying authentic Manchego when you see the whole cheese, but… what to do when the cheese is served in already-cut portions? How to make sure it’s the real thing?

Here are some tips:

  1. Try to check a whole cheese of the brand you want to buy to make sure it has all the signs of a true Manchego – see previous post.
  2. The Color. The inside of the cheese should be white to ivory in color, depending on how long it was aged.
  3. The Paste. The interior of the cheese must look all the same throughout. You may see a smooth surface, or there may be an uneven sprinkling of small holes.

Hope you’ll find these recommendations useful. Real Manchego cheeses are waiting on the shelves to be enjoyed. Make sure you buy the real staff!
