Montcabrer is an artisanal semi firm pasteurized goat cheese from Catalonia with a grey rind, due to the mold that grows on it during the ripening process
The paste is closed and slightly elastic, of ivory color and with no eyes. Montcabrer has an intense mineral aroma, with mild notes of goat milk. The flavor is medium-intense with a milky and somewhat acidic entrance, giving way to clean and pronounced mineral notes. Hints of walnuts and toasted notes appear at the end. Overall it is a very personal cheese, markedly mineral.
Montcabrer is a very versatile cheese in cuisine. It pairs well with different types of bread, strawberry jam, fresh fruit -such as grapes, dates or figs- and with olive paste; with sweets and raw nuts such as walnuts, pistachios, almonds, macadamia nuts or candied walnuts. It is ideal in fresh and warm salads, in carrot or pumpkin cream, grilled or grated on pasta, with chicory, anchovies, smoked salmon or for making custards or cheesecakes. Pairs well with Pinot Noir wines.
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.
