Love Manchego but want to try something different? Gran Capitan Curado may be your answer. Made with 50% cow’s milk and 50% sheep’s milk, this cheese has notes of olive oil, hay, and a pleasant lemony tang. The addition of cow’s milk balances out the funky barnyard flavors of sheep’s milk, while creating a creamier texture than your typical Manchego. It’s made in Villarrobledo, Spain, right in the heart of La Mancha. As a nod to traditional cheese making practices of the
region, the wheels are formed with the classic basket weave texture. It’s then aged for a minimum of five months, so that the flavors have time to develop.  Add it to your next Spanish cheese plate, or shave it over a crisp summer salad!
