Garrotxa is an artisanal cheese produced in Catalonian regions of Garrotxa and L’Anoia. Jaume and María, a couple in their sixties, own this artisan family-run dairy located in a 250 years old hamlet in the Garrotxa valley, close to the Pyrenees mountain range.
Made from pasteurized goat's milk, Garrotxa has a natural blue-greyish mold rind, due to the extremely humid climate of the area where it is produced. The texture is buttery and creamy and its soft paste is of an intense white. It has a unique mild and long lasting taste, slightly sweet and lactic, balanced and not too goaty. Garrotxa has a mild aroma of nuts and mushrooms.
Thinly sliced it is perfect as a snack with fresh bread and wine. Garrotxa is delicious with young fruity white wines, Sherries or Sweet muscatels.

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.
