This ash-ripened goat cheese looks like both a two layer cake and a work of art. Young but lightly aged, this stunner is made of pastured goat milk in Michigan and demonstrates all the care of its production, in both flavor and appearance.
Hand ladled and painted with a silvery vegetable ash, Idyll Gris (pronounced “gree” French for “gray”) has a fluffy and light interior. Its taste is mild with notes of fresh cream, fruit and umami flavors, developing a gooey 'creamline' under the delicate thin rind as it ages.
Any goat cheese lover will be happy with this one, as well as those who are new to goat cheese. Since Idyll Farms goats are Certified Humane Raised and Handled, you can be sure there's minimal gamey goat flavor, as goats have plenty of space and fresh wild food to enjoy.
