PERFECT PAIRING #4 – Manchego cheese & Dates

Manchego cheese & datesToday I’m bringing you a very moorish combination.

Believe it or not, this delightful pair was already common in Medieval Spain. Tasteful and exquisite, some foods never go out of fashion.

The sweetness of the date mixes perfectly with the sharp, peppery taste of the Manchego. And it all goes deliciously well with a glass of red wine. Yum.

You can try this as chic finger food just stuffing the dates with the manchego pieces. It sounds so fancy…but really all you have to do is cut the cheese in pieces to fit inside the dates.  Don’t you love recipes like that?

Want to make the snack even more nutritious? Add some pistachio nuts on the side. Pistachios are tiny, but pack a powerful nutritional punch. They will also extend the exotic tone and add more color to your plate.

You can serve these platters up at your next party. Or you can just sit back, relax and nibble on them. I love them just like that. Make me feel like a Moorish queen.

  1. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I
    by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you did,
    the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than
    ever before.

  3. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several
    weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop
    hackers?
