As it melts in your mouth, savor the delicate texture and flavors of hazelnuts, thyme and rosemary in this semi-firm goat cheese. Snow white in color with a velvety texture, your taste buds will be certain that Garrotxa cheese is a work of epicurean art.
Serve on crusty bread or arrange alongside fresh pears, almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts. The mildly acidic, fresh milk taste of Garrotxa is ideal for lightening up a heavier dish or taking center stage for dessert when paired with fresh preserves or drizzled with honey and served alongside fruit. Spanish white wine or bubbly champagne play nicely with this delicious delicacy, complementing the cheese’s buttery sweetness.
Made from the milk of Murciana goats that graze among the Pyrenees Mountains in the Catalonia region of Northern Spain, a wet climate with fertile pastures helps give Garrotxa its characteristic fresh, nutty and herbal flavor. The family-owned company that supplies our Garrotxa has discovered an innovative way to prevent this delicate cheese from drying out. They carefully dip the small cheese wheel in a protective black wax to preserve its freshness and prevent cracking around the edges.
