Add whole garlic cloves and sauté for another 2 minutes. Return meat to the pot and add lemon juice, stock, zest and mix well. Cover the pot, lower the heat to minimum and let meat cook for one hour. Add artichokes, quince, thyme, rosemary and season again with salt and pepper. Continue cooking for an extra 20 minutes. Add cheese to the pot, mix well, cover and cook for another 5 minutes.
