So Fresh, So Tangy
What’s My Name? Fresh chèvre
What Kind of Cheese Am I? I’m a fresh goat cheese, always pasteurized if sold in America, but you can find raw versions of me in France.
Where Am I From? Anywhere goat’s are found!
Three Words That Describe Me: adaptable, naïve, and zesty
Fun Fact: I’ve got a less lactose than cow’s milk cheese, so I’m easier to digest.
I’m also high in Vitamins B & D and Potassium too – I’m quite the catch!
What Do I Smell Like? Fresh and tangy
What Do I Feel Like? Soft, spreadable and as fluffy as a cloud
What Do I Taste Like? Lemony and refreshing
Favorite Foods: I love being melted into sauces, stuffed into lasagne or cannoli, baked into cheesecake, or simply spread on a bagel. For an easy appetizer, drizzle me with honey, sprinkle with pistachios, and serve with baguette or crackers.
Favorite Beverages: I like all things fruity and bubbly! Try me with a sparkling citrus cocktail, tart rosé or a refreshing Hefeweizen beer.
Where to Find Me: I’m easy to find at most supermarkets, such as Whole Foods or Mariano’s. Ask your local monger or specialty food’s store about local versions of me, too!
What I’ll cost ya: about $12 – 18 a pound, depending on the brand.
