Rich, Creamy Goat Cheese Recipes
Goat Cheese and Fresh Mushroom Crostini
Sweet and tart contrast in this creamy, sharp goat cheese appetizer from Judy Schad. It looks elegant, but it's easy to make.
Chevre (the French word for all goat-milk cheeses) can range from delicately aromatic to robustly sharp and acid. Goat milk gives cheese a texture and flavor that is "most memorable," Judy says.
Consumption of goat cheese has grown, but still is only 1 percent of the total cheese market -- which is incredible to Judy. "For me, the textural difference is huge," she says. "You can get a rich, full-flavored cheese that's still light and fine."
