Our Chèvre Bûche is perfect when crumbled onto a salad or melted on sourdough. It definitely has a more-ish quality and it is a perfect introduction to goats’ cheeses.
The literal meaning of Bûche de Chèvre is simply goat log. It originates from the Poitou-Charentes region of France. 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.
Poitou-Charentes is on the South West side of France. It is set between the valleys of the Loire and the Dordogne. Here the climate is one of the mildest in France and the area is largely rural. These factors combine to make it the perfect location for cheesemaking.
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.
We also sell a smoked version of this cheese.
