" If there is a product in Castilla La Mancha that distinguishes the regional gastronomy it is without doubt Manchego cheese. Manchego Cheese has become a Heritage of World Culture and is representative of the customs of the region that it comes from.
The History of Manchego Cheese is as old as the tradition of raising sheep in the region and time has not changed the essential creation of the product. This cheese has always had its cylindrical shape, its creamy consistency, ivory yellow colour, irregular holes and its external appearance with the “flower” printed on its flat sides and the “pleita “ printed on its rounded sides.
