Platter of GranQueso®

Similar in style to Spanish manchego, GranQueso is made with fresh cow milk and has a firm body and a rich, full flavor. This handcrafted cheese is shelf-cured and has a traditional basket-weave rind. It has no problem living up to the English translation of its name, "great cheese."

Appearance

Ivory colored with an inedible red "basket weave" rind.

Texture

Six months of aging to reach maturity gives GranQueso a firm texture.

Flavor

Rich in flavor, but not pungent, Gran Queso has an extra sharp tang.

Serve.


Grate some onto a salad to perk up your greens, or top vegetables or a vegetable casserole (it goes well with potatoes, onions, mushrooms and broccoli, just to name a few). Easy to shred, but also easy to slice -- it is moist enough not to crumble when you slice it. Gran Queso also melts and blends quite well, so put it on top of pasta or in a quesadilla.

Pair.


Beer: Pale Ale, Lager
Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon, Gruner Veltliner
Spirit: Port, Madeira, Scotch, Tequila Reposado, Tequila Añejo
