Membrillo & Artisan Young Manchego Combo$36
- 1 lb wedge Manchego cheese
- All natural membrillo
- Classic Spanish combination
- Great as a dessert or breakfast treat
In Spain, Manchego cheese is often served with membrillo quince jelly for dessert. Our artisan young Manchego is rich and flavorful. It is perfectly balanced by our sweet and slightly tart membrillo by Cal Valls. Just cut slices of each and serve on a platter.
Membrillo is a medieval fruit similar to an apple, with a delightfully sweet tartness. The family owned company Cal Valls in Catalunya makes their membrillo preserve the old fashioned way, with cane sugar and fresh fruit. The resulting membrillo is bursting with flavor and not to sweet.
The perfect pairing is with the rich, slightly salty flavor of Manchego cheese. The milk comes from Manchega sheep that wander the nearby countryside eating grasses and herbs. The quality of the milk and the careful family production make this ones of the finest Manchegos in all of Spain.
Slice a wedge of Manchego and pair it with a slice of membrillo. Pure, natural flavors that are perfect partners.
