My love for cheese, namely French cheese has remained no mystery here. In fact, I recently made and chronicled two pilgrimages to France, specifically to explore and taste French cheese. I spent the majority of that time in a state of transcendent bliss, savoring many examples of uniquely shaped French goat cheese.
Fortunately for you, there is a wide range of goat cheese – both domestic and international available in the U.S. From fresh chèvre, to runny and pungent triple crème styles, to firm aged goat examples.
To learn more about goat cheese as well as great pairings, head over to the Culture Magazine site. Today you’ll find my post with two recipes: one for Stone Fruit Chutney which pairs beautifully with Le Chevrot and another for Pasta with Chèvre d’Argental and Slow Roasted Early Girls.
I am giving away 5 French goat cheeses so you can test, taste, and create your own recipes. You will also receive a package of tried and true recipes for inspiration, trivia cards so you can learn a little bit of history on French goat cheeses, and temporary tattoos to wear your love for Original Chèvre.
