Chèvre Bûche is a soft goats’ cheese with a bright white rind and a creamy, yet flaky, texture. It has deep rich flavours which are tangy and earthy whilst maintaining a sweetness.
The literal meaning of Bûche de Chèvre is simply goat log. It originates from the Poitou-Charentes region of France and traditionally the cheese must be matured for at least 7 days before it’s eaten. At 7 days the cheese is still quite young and crumbly but as it matures it softens under its rind and develops the most wonderful flavours. The cheese comes into us as a 900g-1kg whole cheese which we slice into rings of any size.
Often you would pair a goats’ cheese with a glass of white wine from the Loire Valley, but we love it with a fruity red wine such a Gamay. For a quick lunch or dinner try serving it with crusty baguettes, fruit and honey.
