Herbs de Humboldt is a goat's milk cheese delivered by Cypress Grove Chevre, of Arcata, California, in Humboldt County. As the name suggests, it is hand-blended with a mix of Herbs de Provence to create a classic, herbal flavoured fresh cheese. Crumble atop homemade pizza or spoon into a fresh fig, wrap with a single slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. It pairs well with Chili Beer, Red Ale and wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio.The cheese won first place at the ACS 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2009, second place at U.S. Cheese Championships 2005 and Silver at World Cheese Awards 2014.

I had the humble goat garlic herb and chèvre version, and it was INCREDIBLE!!! Like ugh not on Arles level but pretty darn good regardless. Perfect ratio of garlic and herbs.

My cheese was not as chock full of herbs as the one pictured here, but the herbs still had a great taste that melded well with the creamy cheese.
