And now for something different!

I couldn’t resist posting on this unique young goat’s cheese from France:

No, they're not poppy-seed bagels...they're cheese

The area surrounding the medieval city of Loches in the southern Loire valley is home to the farmers who make this little ash covered chèvre,

la Couronne Lochiose.

The name, la Couronne, means the crown and comes from its distinctive ring shape. Lochoise means simply that it comes from the area around Loches.

Its taste: It has a mild “goatiness” and is somewhat salty and mildly acidic. There is a whisper of a fresh, green grass flavor and the texture is ultra rich and creamy. It literally melts in your mouth.

Thanks to chez loulou and Culture Magazine for the pix and notes:)

  1. Thanks for the mention. La Couronne is a great goat’s cheese!
    Any chance you could put a link to my site on this post, since you’ve borrowed my notes? Thanks! 🙂
