History and origin
Cheese made in the cheese factory from the milk of the small flock that Manel and Mercè take care of in the family business. They are settled in “Baix Segre” between Cinca and Segre rivers, everything close to the area known as “Aiguabarreig”.
Round, in quarter cuts and in small wedge-shaped cuts, all in the same direction.
It’s always a good moment to enjoy it. It is also very used in many home-made receipts:
grilled with potatoes, melted with a raglette or just with bread and tomato.
