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.

Stinky, goaty, creamy, and delicious. Unusual texture - creamy like a soft brie on the outside, with a soft and crumbly center (like a standard chèvre). March 2022, part of the goat cheese birthday assortment Gramma and Grampa gave J.

The goat cheese flavor is quite strong and slightly sweet. The rind is even edible and carries a distinct flavor. I would say the texture feels a bit too “sandy” or “blocky” for raw tasting. Maybe better with a salad like Feta.
