History and origin
Cottage and fresh cheese, as well as “brossats”, “recruits” and other similar kinds of ricotta-style cheese, are traditional and typical in all Catalunya. They are usually made from the excess of milk after the nursing.
Traditionally it’s served as a dessert together with milk, sugar, jam or just nuts.
It can also be served as a side dish with omelettes or salads.
In some places, it is browned in the frying pan with olive oil and served warm.
