Seven Goat Cheeses to Know and Love
To some, goat cheese might seem the final frontier of turophile-territory, but even the most trepidatious tasters won't be able to resist these seven incredible varieties. Shattering preconceptions of overwhelming gamy, barnyard flavors and chalky supermarket chevres, Serious Eats' slideshow of American and French goat cheeses makes our mouths water!
I am a goat cheese evangelist and optimist who believes even the staunchest goat cheese hater may be forever converted with a bite of something ethereal, something that shatters all goat cheese expectations, like the raw milk Tomme de Chevre Aydius, which has the texture of gruyere and a grassy sweetness that departs entirely from the familiar goat lexicon.
