Manchego Cured Cheese DOP

We want to dedicate today's post to the star product of a brand that we have discovered with the blog: Record Cheese. It's a brand of cheeses with which we have been collaborating many months ago because we love its products, both cheeses (sheep, goat, cow...) and their creams of cheeses of different flavors.

That is why today we are going to talk about Manchego Díaz-Miguel DOP cured Cheese, which recently won the gold medal at the National Fair of the Field in Manzanares (FERCAM), an event that recognizes the eight best Manchego cheeses of each year after making one tasting (45 samples participated this year). Its cured manchego cheese is made with pasteurized milk of sheep of purebred La Mancha and is manufactured according to the requirements set by the "Regulating Council of the Denomination of Origin of Manchego Cheese".

Simply by having this award you already have the confidence that you take home a great cured cheese, with a very intense flavor, and that is a sure product if people come to your house, it never fails!

In addition, you can take it alone or with a little bread or cook it in different recipes, as we have done on several occasions to get other textures for this wonderful product. For example, it is a perfect ingredient to accompany your salads, as it brings a special and original flavor, as in this summer salad.

You can also grate and melt it in a saucepan over very low heat and make a creamy cheese sauce like the one we prepare in these potato cubes with cheese sauce or in these tagliatelle with cheese sauce and spinach, a very healthy recipe for eating pasta, or melting it and then cooling it to make a cream like in this gazpacho with cream cheese and crunchy ham.

Another original way to prepare it is to grate it and cook it in the microwave or in the oven to make a crunchy, as we did in this crocanti of blood sausage with honey and crunchy cheese.

You can find this cheese in different formats: whole (in pieces of 1kg and 3kg) and in wedges of different formats and weights (200gr, 330gr) in any supermarket and large supermarkets. What are you waiting to try it? :-)

Bon appétit!
