LA MANCHA: THE WATERLESS LAND

Manchego Cheese www.themanchegocheese.comAs most of you will know, all Manchego cheeses come from La Mancha. 

This doesn’t mean though that all the cheeses from La Mancha can be called Manchego – a mistake often made by many – as the label is only reserved for the very best.

La Mancha is a region located at Spain’s heart.

Today I found out that it was named by the Arabs, who called it Al Mansha, or “waterless land”. What a beautiful name, and a perfect description of this harsh, rocky land. Its dry and extreme climate with torrid summers and frosty winters has given shape to a very recognizable landscape, which I love. Here only the most resistant flora and fauna survive. Herbs such as thyme, lavender or rosemary, and a wide variety of thickets and bushes, form this unique ecosystem where the Manchega sheep roams.

Smells and flavours of an honest land that come to life in the Manchego cheese.

  11. After the Southern California scene imploded in riotous violence and over-inflamed egos, and most of
    the great DC bands had broken up and reformed into new, Emo-heavy outfits,
    it was time for New York to take over and put itself
    back on the map. My other lists of sci-fi and horror movies of the 50’s, 60’s,70’s and 80’s have been so popular I thought
    I would go back and do one for the horror movies of the
    90’s as well. Interface: USB OTG2, TF card slot1,
