I've returned to the utterly delightful Udder Delights for for a taste of their Chevre.
This is a fresh goat cheese - presented as a log. There's also an ashed and a herbed version available. It's pressed but still has a softness to it - your fingerprints will definitely show in this.
I seem to repeat myself when it comes to goat cheese - but what does strike you is the whiteness of the curd. The outside is slightly moist - you could probably compare it's feel to say a buffalo mozzarella.
It is sliceable though it will crumble somewhat as you can see but it's also very easy to spread. These qualities do make it more useful in the kitchen as it opens up the range of applications. As slices you could add it to tarts and the like, or serve it as is on a cheese board or treat it like a fromage frais.
Tastewise, it's a little more "goaty", slightly sharper in taste, though still extremely creamy in the mouth with an appealing tang.
If you'd like to know more about Udder Delights head over to this post.
