chabichou du poitou, loire valley, france

i think chabichou is a fabulous cheese!  my love for this cheese started when working in the pyrmont fromagerie for simon johnson many years ago.  to me this goat cheese stands out on its own...wonderful served room temperature with sliced rustic walnut bread & a glass of pinot.

cheese notes - chabichou is sweet & delicate in taste touched by a slight acidic & salty flavour.  the rind is thin with white, yellow & sometimes blue mould.  the pate is firm & the centre can be chalky in texture.  when matured longer this cheese will have a harder, crumblier appearance & a much more pronounced "goatier" sharper flavour.

Yummo! Something tells me I may have been helped out in the Simon Johnson fromagerie by none other than yourself. 6 years ago I lived a block away and often bought cheese from SJ. Oh, the smell of that place. Heaven!

Everything you just described has me salivating. A little good quality cheese, some walnut bread and a glass of wine sounds like heaven right now.

Someone necessarily lend a hand to make severely

far? I amazed with the analysis you made to create this actual submit extraordinary.
Excellent process!
