About Goat cheese

There are more than a hundred varieties of goat cheese, but today 14 French goat cheeses have the PDO label. There are goat cheeses in each cheese family, except for the family of pressed cooked cheeses. However, a large proportion of goat cheeses are soft cheeses with a natural rind. Goat cheese usually has a homogeneous texture. The paste can be smooth, unctuous or even melting. In some cheeses, the taste of goat can be quite pronounced, while others will have subtle aromas of nuts or hazelnut, fruity, etc.. The way it is eaten: fresh or warm and its maturity also influence the taste. With time, the character of goat cheese reveals itself more.
