Garroxta is a goat’s milk cheese produced in the Catalonia region of Spain. It is still made in an artisanal fashion to ensure the perfect quality of each batch. On the outside, the wheels are coated in a grey mold, but inside lies a semi-soft and incredibly thick paste.
The flavor of Garroxta cheese will range once it hits your tongue. You’ll experience flavors from herbal and milky to nutty, to that classic goat’s milk tang.
As with any other goat cheese, Garroxta is a wonderful crumbly topping on any salad of fresh greens and vegetables. It also makes a beautiful addition to your cheese board with some crackers, nuts and dried fruits.
If you are looking for a wine pairing, Garroxta works well with a variety of sparkling wines, as well as Champagne. If you are serving it in a sweet preparation with honey and crusty bread, try accenting it with a Sherry.
Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.
For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.
A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.
B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.
C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.
D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.
E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.
Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).
As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.
For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
