So now that Manchego has been put on your radar a couple of weeks ago, it’s time to shine some light on another cheese that is of great importance to Spain’s culinary arsenal; Mahon. Mahon is a soft to hard cheese made from cow’s milk and is named after the port of Mahon on the island of Menorca off of Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Considered one of the most versatile cheeses in Spanish gastronomy this aged cheese is firm and complex with both savory salty notes and a sweet, nutty, backbone. Crumbly and perfect for grating over pasta or sliced alongside dried fruits this cheese pairs well with a Spanish red such as Garnacha or Rioja. Usually $8.99 per 4.7oz wedge the Ponce de Leon Mahon will be on sale this week for only $6.99. Cheers and Bon Appetit!
