Post 6: Hello My Name Is…

Ben LaCloche with menu

Coach Farm is searching for a name for its new raw aged goat’s milk cheese. Several bloggers received samples of the cheese so they could taste and describe it for our readers. Today’s post comes from eight-year-old Ben LaCloche of Ben’s Food Reviews.

At first sight, this white as snow cheese looked like a brie. When sliced it felt like an aged cheddar. Day one tastes: complex, tangy like a blue, salty and classic goat cheese taste. Texture: crumbly, dry, easy young rind. Day two brought about similar flavors, but the blue lessened. I think it would pair well with fresh fruit, preserves or on a salad. This cheese would be great on a spring or summer cheese board.

My idea for a name is Bianco Capra (white goat).

Ben T. LaCloche was born in Chicago, IL and moved to Madison, WI when he was 8 months old. He is currently in third grade. “Exploring, eating and reviewing food experiences is what I like to do when I’m not reading, listening to music or going to school.”
