Montadito de Sobrasada y Queso de CabraBy tapasonlineCanapé of sobrasada and goat's cheese - this quick and simple, but delicious tapa is very adaptable. You can use any cheese of your choice; for this example, we used Montbru goat's cheese with black truffle, which works particularly well and adds the delicate flavour of the truffle. You could use slices of baquette with a single piece of sobrasada and cheese on each one and a nice variation is to drizzle honey over the sobrasada before adding the cheese. A topping of dried herbs is optional.
Camembert al Horno con Sobrasada y MielBy tapasonlineBaked Camembert with sobrasada, honey and almonds - if you want to be really authentic, you can use a Spanish cheese such as Torta del Casar or Cañareal Cremoso, but Camembert is cheaper and more readily available and it is questionable as to whether you would actually want to bake the other cheeses. Sobrasada is available in mild or spicy versions, so the choice is yours. You could use ground almonds, but the flavour and consistency is best when using whole or flaked, especially if you have some Marcona almonds. One cheese will serve as a starter or tapa shared between two people.
Queso Manchego FritoBy tapasonlineFried manchego cheese - This delicious tapa is in essence a very simple dish, but the trick is in ensuring that the cheese is adequately coated and in the time and temperature of the frying. You don't want to end up with an empty shell of fried breadcrumbs.
