In Spain, Manchego cheese is often served with membrillo quince jelly for dessert. Our artisan young Manchego wheel 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 prefect pairing is with the rich, slightly salty flavor of Manchego cheese. Our manchego by Villajos is made by hand in the tiny town of Porzuna. 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 the finest Manchego in all of Spain.
Slice a wedge of Manchego and pair it with a slice of membrillo. Pure, natural flavors that are perfect partners.
