Aged Chevre Cheese

$10.95

4.5 oz

Each piece of snowy, lightly aged chevre is hidden beneath a brilliant blue blanket of pencillum roquefortii mold. The result is an immediate tang, but no residual blue flavors: simply dense, cakey, tart goat cheese that coats the mouth with a pleasant lactic taste. The Roquefort mold is mixed into the milk along with salt, and left to develop in a cool cave for approximately three weeks. The cheese does not develop blue veining because the paste is not pierced in any way; the mold, of course, can only develop when exposed to oxygen, hence the distinctive exterior.
