Murcia Curado's Naked Goat
With its sweet, buttery tang, it wouldn't be difficult to convince any turophile Naked Goat is made from sheep's milk. However, its name speaks the truth, which is why it's perfect to convert chevre naysayers!
This little goat cheese, a firm, oily variety that many might pass off as sheep's milk at first glance, is surprisingly un-goat-like. Firm like Pecorino, oily like Manchego, and buttery like Fontina, Naked Goat is an enigmatic treat. Cheese novices will love its salty kapow, while weathered cheese lovers will adore its grassy followup. The inexperienced might miss the fact that it's a goat cheese at all, which makes it a prime candidate for retuning anti-goat folks to a more openminded, capricious existence.
