I was reading: "Additionally, the cheese is pressed using small wooden boards that leave imprints of wheat-ear patterns on the top and bottom of the product, rendering a unique and earthy appearance."
Would there be a way to do that with home made manchego, and if there is a way, when? I was thinking that maybe I could get a a placemat that was nicely woven to get an interesting texture. Would this need to be done during the process of pressing it, which makes sense, or can it be done after it's brined, while it's aging? (wrapping something textured around it). Carter, I bet you would know.
