approx 1/3 lb, vacuum sealed wedge (pictured, top right)
A curd washed cheese that is aged anywhere from 3 to 9 months. It is a bit of a sweeter nutty cheese – sweeter due to lower acidity in this cheese from the curd washing. This cheese has natural mechanical holes, slices, grates and melts well as it wonderful all around semi hard cheese. Firm and creamy with a tender, mildly-goaty flavor, this cheese is delicate enough to pair with Pilsners or Pino Gris.Chevre
4oz container (pictured, blue bowl)
Chevre is a soft, spreadable, non-aged, goat cheese with a light, mildly-tangy flavor. The texture of our chevre is between those of ricotta and cream cheeses and is “crumble-able” when cold. You can enjoy on this with fruit, on a crusty bread, over a salad, or as a flavor-enhanced substitute in any recipe calling for a soft cheese.
