Manchego El Trigal Reserva

Regular price $ 25.99

Country: Spain

El Trigal Manchego is named for the Spanish region of La Mancha, also home of Don Quixote. The cheese is produced in the La Mancha region from pasteurised sheep's milk. It has a black gray or buff coloured rind with a crosshatch pattern, the paste colour is stark white when young, becomes yellowish as it ages. The fully aged cheese is usually smeared with olive oil and surface mould is removed. The cheese has holes throughout the paste with a mild, slightly briny, nutty flavour. It is sold at various stages of maturity: at the age of 13 weeks it is described as curado (cured) and, when over three months old it is referred to as viejo (aged). There is a peppery bite to cheeses that have reached a great age. It is best known of a series of sheep's cheeses and is similar to Zamorano, Cadiz, Calahora or Castelleno.

FROM GOOGLE REVIEW

Mary Geschwindt "I had a large catering order (about 20-30 people) for 3 Saturday's in a row. Eastern District made the process of arranging this catering so easy and left me with nothing to worry about! Their owner was super accommodating and willing to work with some specific requests we had about packaging the order (not to mention working with allergies, but we happened to have none). We ordered an assortment of their sandwiches and everyone found them delicious. I personally tried all of their vegetarian sandwich options and each was so tasty! I will definitely stop by here again when I'm next in the neighborhood.''
