The Delta del Ebro is a protected natural river delta found along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and treasured for its rich fauna and flora. This area is still home to traditionally-farmed rice paddies, and it is from these that the company Licors Jane sources the ingredients for its singular rice liqueur, which is sold under the brand Licor de Arroz El Petonet. In addition to its unique flavor, this product is apt for vegans and people who are gluten or lactose intolerant. The company recommends drinking it neat, with ice, or added to coffee or tea.
Cheese and chocolate? Yes, please!
Experimentation is the best way forward, regardless if we achieve the desired outcome or the results are a big disaster. Along these lines, many people might be inclined to think that mixing chocolate and cheese is not the best idea. But they would be wrong! One of the country’s most daring cheese companies, La Antigua, has launched a product consisting of a soft cheese made with pasteurized ewe’s milk and natural cacao, which lends it a very characteristic color and aromas. Those who dare to take a bite will find chocolate nibs on the inside of this exquisite and surprising morsel.
