Torta de La Serena PDO is a unique cheese made exclusively from the very thick whole raw milk of Merina sheep. These sheep are famous for their wool and meat in La Serena area of Extremadura. This cheese is a close relative of Torta del Casar PDO.
Made with thistle-flower rennet, this cheese is suitable for vegetarians. The paste is soft and thick with a natural washed rind. It has a very buttery spreadable texture and the flavor is developed, unsalted with bitter after-tones and a remarkable aroma of aged sheep milk. Torta de La Serena PDO is ripened for a minimum of 60 days and turned upside down every day.
Torta de La Serena PDO should be consumed at room temperature, removing the top and spooning it out with Picos tapas bread. It is also fantastic for making sauces for either meat or fish. The pairings with cava and fruity young white wines is simply fantastic, complementing the flavors of the cheese. When the Torta is aged, red wines also match.

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.
