And many other goat cheeses…
Goat cheese comes in many different forms, from soft fresh goat cheese to crumbly goat cheese to hard goat cheese. There is a lot more variety of softer goat cheeses available, especially from France. In French, goat cheese is referred to as “chevre”. Goat cheese is very easily recognizable in flavour. It has a distinct flavour that you can’t really confuse with any other kind of milk. Goat cheese is best described as having a “banyardy” flavour, which means it tastes like a barnyard to many.
This type of flavour turns a lot of people away from goat cheese but we feel it’s just something that a person needs to develop a taste for. We often tell people to try goat cheese in a salad first or in some other dish where other flavours are present, this way you will work your way into the goat milk flavour as apposed to just having straight chunks of goat cheese (which we love by the way). A baby green salad with some walnuts, dried cranberries and crumbled goat cheese would be a great start to the world of goat cheese.
The reasons we’re trying to “baby” everyone into eating goat cheese is because of the many benefits of goat milk. It is known to have a higher amount of vitamin A and potassium. Also, goat milk cheese commonly has a lower fat content than cow’s milk cheese. People with lactose intolerance can often eat goat milk cheese because goat milk cheeses have a very low amount of lactose. So unless someone is severely lactose intolerant, then goat milk cheese would be worth a try.
