Description

Details

Garrotxa goat's milk cheese is produced following artisan techniques with local goat´s milk and aged for 55 days. During the aging period, a fungus grows on the bark of the cheese neutralizing some of its acidity. The result is a much sweeter flavor with a touch of cellar. This cheese is at the top of the gourmet cheese list from Spain. Mild and balanced, lightly salted and with the aroma of nuts, is the perfect rustic cheese for the real cheese lover. It´s sold with a moldy bark, that helps to preserve its unique characteristics. Ours, however, are mostly free from mold and rubbed with olive oil.

Meet the Cheese Maker
Pere Boadella produces this semi-hard cheese just outside of Tarragona, in Cataluña, northeast of Spain, not far away from Barcelona. It is probably the most famous Catalan cheese and is distinguished from other cheeses, believe or not, by the mold growth on its rind. He works in a local basis, with a small team in a small creamery. He knows perfectly all the goats that produce the milk. In fact, the fresh milk is picked up 3 times a week because they only work with fresh ingredients. The quality of the ingredients and a happy team make this gourmet Spanish cheese so unique. For Pere, this is not a business, is more a way of life. He learnt from his mother, who started to produce cheese when he was a kid. Those were the middle 80's, when a new rurality movement was moving back to villages and small towns. Pere is an inheritor of that artisan tradition, still alive in the Pyrenees area. Pere is that type of person firmly connected to the Earth. And that connection with nature is something you will savor when you'll try this special goat's milk cheese.

Garrotxa is a delicious table cheese, full bodied and flavorful, with a long, smooth finish that hints of nuts and herbs. It will delight the most demanding cheese connoisseurs. It is also often used in culinary preparations. Its balance, elegance and personality, have been recognized both in national and international market. It´s another essential cheese if you think about a gourmet gift basket.
