Champagne and Cheese

Weekend Recommendation

Inject your weekend with a little Spanish flavor! Did you know that the Spanish make their own version of Champagne? A tradition at any Spanish celebration, Cava comes in a similar range of sweetness and should also be served cold. The Brut version of this popular drink is a perfect match with Garrotxa, a cheese from the Catalonia region of Spain (pronounced GAH-ROW-CHA).

Garrotxa, covered in a blue-gray mold, is a dense, semi-soft treat is flavorful without being overpowering. It is made of goats milk -- Garrotxa is milky and creamy with hints of nuttiness. A light bread such as a baguette and an accompaniment of figs and honey are perfect with Cava and Garrotxa.
