Pata Cabra

PataCabra, a washed-rind cheese, is made with milk from goats that graze in the lush meadows of northeastern Spain. The valley, in the Aragon region in the town of Zaragoza, is surrounded entirely by mountains. Patacabra, which translates as "leg of the goat", is wonderful when young as well as when it is aged. Pungent yet smooth, the sticky rind fades from a shiny, reddish color into a pale, burnished orange-brown.
