Goat cheese is a popular creamy cheese capable of livening up a grilled cheese, recreating a margarita pizza or adding a fresh tangy twist to pasta. This cheese alone has the ability to make chicken exciting again. Fortunately, Goat Cheese is an affordable gourmet fromage so there are no reasons for you not to indulge in its richness from time to time. It’s mild enough to mix with most flavors, yet zesty enough to contribute to the recipe.

McCamembert Burger? Introducing Burgers with French Cheeses

According to the Huffington Post, McDonald’s in France are planning to introduce burgers with gourmet French cheeses. Now now cheese lovers. Before you go flying off to France to devour these “gourmet” burgers, know that the French are already unhappy with the idea of it; especially the Camembert producers from the famous cheese’s traditional home of Normandy “complaining that they feel used”.

Based on Australian reports, the Camembert cheese that will be used in these burgers is not even from the Normandy region and therefore will not taste like the original version. What are your thoughts on this? Would you prefer your burger with Ile de France Camembert made authentically from Normandy or some second-rate, cheaper version of it?
