A generous, artfully-arranged cheese plate is often the highlight of a cocktail gathering. Make it a solely-Spanish selection with these classic cheeses and signature garnishes:
Manchego — Probably Spain’s most famous cheese, it’s mild and smooth, and made from sheep’s milk. Serve along with a bit of membrillo, or quince paste, a slightly sweet and fruity confection the consistency of thick gelatin.
Idiazábal — This sheep's milk cheese has a subtle smoky flavor. Serve along with quartered chunks of piquillo peppers and toothpicks.
