Ile de France Goat CheeseNaturally Exceptional

The Secret Behind All Natural Ile de France Chèvre: Grass Fed Goats

 
Grass Fed Goats

Our Goat Cheese is a traditional fresh Chèvre from the French Rhône Alps region - where goats are fed grass. They graze outside ten months out of the year and are fed natural hay in the wintertime.

Their milk then takes a rich flavor that is the one of the soil and flowers of pre-alpine meadows. So it is not only the goats – it's the grass that makes our Chèvre unique and delicious.

 
Flavor profile

Ile de France Goat cheese is slightly salty, a bit tangy and above all - fresh tasting, with a rich texture.

 
Suggestions & serving tips

- When chilled, Ile de France Goat Cheese crumbles beautifully onto salads, and tastes great with crunchy greens, mixed vegetables and sweet, citrus fruits like berries.

- Unless using in a salad, always remove Goat Cheese from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving – it will soften enough to be spreadable and is fantastic on hearty breads like French baguettes.

 
Featured recipes & pairings

Ile de France goat cheese is tangy and complements full, fruit-flavored white wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. For red wine and goat cheese pairings, try a zesty Pinot Noir or Beaujolais Nouveau, which both balance goat cheese's salty profile. For more fantastic pairings, check out our top five goat cheese pairings page.

As for recipes, the fresh and smooth tanginess of Ile de France Goat Cheese adds fantastic flavors to many common dishes – and creates delectable combinations with many ingredients. From simple cobb salads to pumpkin soup to fettuccine pasta with salmon, goat cheese is a tasty part of all types of recipes.

Six years ago I got a little booklet at the grocery store entitled Monsieur Formage Recipe Corner, Holiday Classics with Gourmet Esprit. I served two, the Southern-Style Souffle of Sweet Potatoes & Chevre and the Creamy Pumpkin Dream Pie, and every crumb was gone! I post on a message board and am telling about these divine recipes. The Pie recipe can be found online, but not the sweet potato recipe. Is there anyway you can include this phenomenal recipe online so that my friends can find it? Thank you.

After much confusion, I found that I had won a Huge wheel of cheese plus camambert,roquefort,and goat cheese. I was not that fond of anything EXCEPT the goat cheese and it was WONDERFUL. The stuff at the store did not compare!
