Picture of fresh goat cheese pepper by vermont creamery
Vermont Creamery produces many types of goat milk cheese and this small 4 oz. log of Pepper Chevre is just one of them. We like this one because it is a nice combination of creamy tangy goat cheese and spicy colorful pepper. Wonderful on toast, crackers or a sandwich, crumbled in a salad or on a pizza. When a young Allison Hooper came back from working on a farm in Brittany, France she learned time-honored traditions of European artisanal cheesemaking. Years later, she received a lot of positive response after producing her fresh goat cheese, her chevre, for a banquet and the idea of founding Vermont Butter & Cheese Company, now called Vermont Creamery, was born. Since then Vermont Creamery has earned many awards and the products are used by chefs and consumers. These goat logs are handcrafted cheeses, made with local milk from Vermont family farms; they have a simple, mild, fresh goats’ milk favor, and they are highly versatile — an excellent ingredient in many dishes as well as on its own. read more...
