Our smoked chèvre bûche is specially smoked for us by one of our cheese suppliers. They take the chèvre bûche which has a creamy, yet flaky, texture as well as deep rich flavours which are tangy and earthy whilst maintaining a sweetness. They then gently smoke it over oak chippings which really enhances the flavour of the cheese giving it a real smoky tang.
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 whole cheese which we slice into rings of any size.
This cheese is delicious when paired with a glass of Beaujolais.
