Chèvre means "goat" in French and refers to cheese made from goat's milk. This term is commonly used to describe various goat cheeses, ranging from fresh, creamy varieties to aged and crumbly ones. Chèvre cheeses come in different shapes, sizes, and textures, offering a wide variety of flavours.
Fresh chèvre is soft, spreadable, and has a mild, tangy taste. It is often found in logs or small rounds and may be rolled in herbs, spices, or other coatings. As it ages, chèvre can develop a more complex flavour, firmer and crumbly texture.
