Spanish Cheese Collection

Conjure a bit of Spain at home with this wonderful collection of two sheep's milk cheeses and one goat's milk cheese, all aged to peak ripeness. Hand picked for us by the European cheese specialists at Fresca Italia, our selection includes: Farmstead Manchego: Made with the raw milk of La Mancha sheep-as Spanish law dictates for Manchego- this cheese is aged for six months and has a wonderfully flaky texture and a buttery, nutty aroma; its taste is of olives, hazelnuts and herbs. Odre: A bloomy rind sheep's milk cheese reminiscent of Camembert; it has a mild, buttery aroma, a semisoft texture and a sweet, milky flavor. Nevat: Like Odre, Josep Cuixart, a famous Spanish cheesemaker, makes this selection in small batches. Made from goat's milk, it has a bloomy rind, a slightly crumbly texture and a bright, pleasantly tart flavor profile. Collection includes: 8 oz. Farmstead Manchego, 10.6 oz. Odre and 7.5 oz. Nevat. Shipped chilled. Made in Spain.

Last week we tried the Spanish Cheese Collection for the very first time and I guess you could say it was love at first bite! The Manchego was exactly what I hoping for--super sharp with hints of nuts. There’s no need for a slice of bread or cracker with this one, it’s more than perfect on its own. The Odre starts off very mild and creamy and finishes strong. The Nevat is bright and tangy and is best consumed generously smeared atop a baguette slice. My husband, Marc, is a cheese connoisseur of sorts with a penchant for bloomy rinds. Needless to say, he couldn’t get enough of both the Odre and the Nevat. Lucky for him, I’m more of a Manchego girl myself. We paired the entire collection with a dry Albarino which seemed to do the trick. Overall, this collection offered a delectable variety of flavors and textures to try from Spain sans the airplane ticket!
