Have you ever eaten anything with goat cheese? I can’t even explain to you the rich cheesy taste. It’s almost like a combination of cream cheese and ricotta cheese. Of course, all cheese goes great with wine, but your next wine tasting party will be a real hit with these Goat Cheese Appetizers!
What is Goat Cheese?
Goat cheese is made from goat milk. Goat milk is used to make all kinds of cheese such as Gouda, Cheddar, and Brie. Here are some of the different types:
Goat cheese that is aged is usually French. It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. You will find that it is usually covered in an edible ash to prevent it from drying out. It has a fluffy middle and a gooey exterior. This is my favorite kind!
Tomme style basically means a wheel of cheese. This cheese is also covered in an edible ash to prevent the crust from developing.
Did you know you could get blue goat cheese? Its blue mold is mixed into the curds. As it ages, the flavor changes making it sharper, earthier, and more pungent.
Goats milk Brie is subtle and refreshing. It is even more subtle and refreshing than traditional cow’s milk. Look for the name Peilloute to try it.
You don’t just get Cheddar cheese from cow’s milk. In fact, goat cheddar has everything you want; its sharp, fruity, and has a distinctive goaty tang.
Another of my favorite goat cheeses is Gouda. It is soft and creamy making it perfect as a table cheese. When its aged, it is sweet and delicious with some Carmel overtones.
If these cheeses sound delicious, imagine how much more delicious they are in these appetizers…
