Zamorano P.D.O. is produced in Zamora, in the Castilla and León area, a well-known cheese producing area since the pre-roman era, with its long cold winters and very warm summers.
Félix is one of the most outstanding cheese makers of Spain. His farmhouse dairy takes great care of the smallest details, reason for which the production is very limited and each cheese is basically a piece of art. Three brothers and their three wives follow a six generations old shepherd tradition. The milk used comes all from its own 2000 heads Churra sheep. The family decided to return to this ancient tradition with the aim of elaborating a very high quality cheese made from pure sheep milk at a time when only large and industrialized productions were carried out, ensuring the unity of the family in the process. Processes are very artisanal and cheeses are turned over by hand. The cheese is slowly ripened for over 7 months in special cellars with high humidity environment to encourage the formation of a natural rind. Every cheese comes with its own wax seal.
Zamorano P.D.O. has a natural rind, with no dyes. The paste is pale to strong yellow in color with small, irregular eyes. The flavor is developed and intense without being too strong. It is piquant but not aggressive, buttery and oily in the mouth and persistent on the palate with an aroma of wine cellars and an aftertaste of walnuts. Subtle hints of caramel and grass burst through the buttery nature of the cheese, making it ideal to serve with ham, fruit and some crusty bread. The potency of this mature sheep’s milk cheese counterbalances well with Crianza red wine from Spain

Todd Bowles hasn't revealed his exact quarterback plan for Saturday night against the Detroit Lions, Darrelle Revis Jerseysbut he indicated Tuesday that Josh McCown will play more than last week -- meaning more than one series.
Makes sense. The New York Jets need to increase McCown's playing time as they get closer to the regular season."I like his leadership, I like how he takes control of the offense," offensive coordinator John Morton said of the Jets' presumptive Week 1 starter, who had a brief but effective outing in the opener. "He's seen a lot of football. I like that. I like his experience. That's the biggest thing."
Morton is a disciple of Jon Gruden, whose preference for seasoned quarterbacks was well known. Food for thought.
A recap of the quarterback competition on Tuesday:
This was a solid day for McCown (10-for-15), who was pleased by the overall performance of the offense. Eric Decker JerseysAfterward, he said, "We need to keep stacking days like this."
Wow moment: There was nothing spectacular, just a bunch of high-percentage throws that were executed.
Whoa moment: He almost was intercepted on his first pass, as linebacker Demario Davis dropped into coverage and deflected a pass. McCown has gone six straight practices without an interception. Did we just jinx him?
This was the fourth straight practice that Hackenberg had more total reps than McCown -- 23 to 20. Leonard Williams JerseysHe completed eight of 15 attempts, managing to avoid a sack -- a rarity. The pass protection was much better than Monday.
Wow moment: Hackenberg made two throws that stood out. He unleashed a 50-yard bomb to rookie wide receiver Dan Williams, who outmuscled Marcus Williams for the ball. Later, Hackenberg fired a laser to Robby Anderson on the far sideline. Matt Forte JerseysThe pass had plenty of giddy-up on it, and Anderson made a two-handed, leaping catch.
