Montchevre is an interesting French goat’s milk cheese. The petite logs of Montchevre are covered in salted ash and allowed to age for a short time wrapped in chestnut leaves or vines. While the cheese ages, it develops a thin rind and aure. The flavor also takes a turn for the worse and becomes bitter, so it’s best to enjoy your Montchevre within a short period of time. Montchevre makes a wonderful table cheese and will add character to any cheese platter. Serve it along side crackers or crusty bread. It’s also a good cheese to crumble over a salad for a creamy accent. If you are looking for a wine pairing, try a white Burgundy, also known as the original chardonnay.
