Little Napoleon is a goat cheese made by Zingerman's Creamery based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is produced by gentle handling of the cheese curds. These are then allowed to cure for about a month that gives a robust flavour to the cheese. A young Little Napolean has a light creamy feel with a touch of acidic flavour. As it ages to about 2-3 weeks, it becomes semi-firm with a strong savoury flavour. The fully matured cheese is hard and has a pungent goaty flavour.
The Little Napoleon is best when served on rusty French bread, toast points or crackers. It pairs well with touch of sweet, like a fig jam or chutney.
