MANCHEGO, HISPANICO, IBERICO – Live via Zoom!
December 10, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$29.00
Manchego in one of the most popular Spanish cheeses and is produced in the La Mancha region of Spain from milk from Manchego sheep. It was traditionally made in grass baskets which produced a woven texture on the rind. Most cheesemakers these days used a cheese mold/form with a special lining to reproduced that classic woven pattern. Manchego can be eaten while very young (2 months of ripening time) or well-aged (2 years or more). If following this basic recipe with cow milk, we’d refer to the cheese as Hispanico. With a blend of cow, sheep and goat milk, it’s known as Iberico.
This live, interactive session will happen at 1:00 pm MT on December 10th, 2020 and will be co-taught by Kate Johnson, owner of The Art of Cheese along with special guest instructor, Denise Milligan of Spanish Sunday. Denise lives part time in Spain and has visited with many Spanish cheesemakers to perfect this recipe and she will share her many tips and techniques with you! (Don’t worry if you can’t attend the session at the LIVE time. A recording will be available for you to watch at your convenience shortly after the class).
