Gooey goat cheese with a halo of crunchy caramelized sugar.
It sounds so fancy, but it’s actually very simple:
just sprinkle chèvre with sugar and torch it.
I Goat The Whole Package
What’s My Name? Bucheron
What Kind of Cheese Am I? I’m a soft goat’s milk cheese with a bloomy rind.
Where Am I From? I was born in the Loire Valley in France, but there are versions of me that are made in America, too.
Three Words That Describe Me: Approachable, pert, smooth-talker.
Fun Fact: My name is French for “lumberjack” because I’m shaped like a log. Let that fuel your fantasy…
What Do I Smell Like? Clean, grassy, with a little minerality.
What Do I Feel Like? I have a thin white rind with a gooey cream-line and a dense, cakey interior.
What Do I Taste Like? Buttery with a lemony tang; I get a little peppery as I age.
Favorite Foods: I can do it savory or sweet, whatever you desire. Try me with French ham, olives, and crusty bread, or pair me with berries, nuts, and honey. I also melt really nicely 😉.
Favorite Beverages: I like all things bright and fresh. Try me with a wheat beer, sauvignon blanc, young pinot noir, or sparkling rosé.
Where to Find Me: Most cheese counters and specialty grocers carry me – just look for the log.

Happy holiday shopping!
Halloween is my favorite time of year by far. Watching horror movies, screaming my way through haunted houses, dressing up like a ghoul – I love it all.Of course, I celebrate my favorite holiday the same way I celebrate anything, with a festive cheese platter. It’s easy and will complete your halloween gathering. Even if you’re one of those people who hates dressing up, I promise,
no one will even notice if you bring a spooky cheese plate to the party.
You just need to know how to throw one together.
Here’s how to do it in
3 simple steps.
Is there anything sexier than a fig? We’ve been seduced by their juicy flesh since Eve gave into temptation in Eden. Fresh, dried, or jammed, they pair with almost anything, from salty blues to creamy bries. Just a few scattered onto a simple cheese board brings it all together.
Which is why I got so excited when Vero Kherian of MissCheesemonger.com, one of my favorite food blogs, invited me to a digital party with California figs.
All I had to do was come up with two pairings. How easy is that?
But I’m not one for being easy – I’m one for getting drunk.
So I made two boozy pairings
to get this fig party started.
Summer berries are just about at peak season and my favorite way of eating them is with a little cheese.
Together they make for a healthy, delicious, and easy meal that you can enjoy any time of the day from breakfast to dessert.
Look to balance the flavors of the fruit with the cheese: try tart fruits with rich cheeses and sweet fruits with salty cheeses.
Here are four plating ideas you can enjoy with summer berries, but do experiment on your own!
Last weekend, I went to New York City to attend The Cheesemonger Invitational. I packed in as much food, drank, and culture as physically possible during my three days in town. I even got to see some of the pride parade! ✔️
Here is a quick recap of the my foodie adventure in NYC!
