Buche de Chevre is an exquisite soft-ripened cheese made from goat's milk and produced in the Poitou-Charentes region in the Loire Valley of central France. A log-shaped chevre cheese, it is ripened for a minimum 7 days rendering the exterior a crusty and hard edible rind with a classic, bloomy mold. The white pate of Buche de Chevre reveals a complex yet typical, bold taste of French goat cheeses underlined by sweet notes of caramel. Soft and creamy with a flaky centre, the cheese instantly melts in the mouth.
Buche de Chevre can be served warm on salads or with fruits for dessert. It could also be used as a dressing for quiches and canapés. Its delightful blend of flavour and texture goes well with a Beaujolais or red wine.
