Garrotxa is a modern, farmhouse, pasteurized hard cheese. Although this cheese is based on an old recipe, it has been developed and marketed, using modern methods. The pure, white milk seems to have absorbed the flavor of fresh walnuts and the scent of mimosa, while retaining the fresh crispness of young grass. It comes with a gray rind and it has a bone, white interior. It has a mild flavor, nutty, with herbal hints. Garroxta is made all over Catalonia in northern Spain.
