Weekend Homework: Queso La Serena and Emilio Lustau Sherry
These two cheeses were very different, but a pleasurable contrast for the palate. The Garrotxa is a woodsy, mild goat cheese, delicious sliced thin and eaten straight. The Serena is a soft sheep’s cheese made with a thistle rennet (read out Cheese Monger’s review of it here). Within this slimy cheese, we noticed a very nutty, tangy flavor that was a surprise, given its delicate lace wrapping and sweet little name.
