The whole point of eating goat cheese is tang and earthiness or else just get cream cheese.

Generally speaking, I agree. But don't knock it until you've tried Highfield's chevre. It really does have a great flavor that sets it apart from most goat cheese...and the tang isn't so much absent as very subtle.


hmm...i think I can get my husband to open up to goat cheese with this one. He "thinks" he hates it, but I think I can sneak this one in, w/out him ever knowing.


There are lots of varieties of goat that have a mild flavor. Cherry Glen Farm's Monocacy Gold is a good example. It has a flavor closer to a tangy brie than your typical goat. I'm looking forward to trying this one.


It sounds like you grew up on pierogies too, Mike! I LOVE all the types you mentioned (well prune..not so much ;-)

I've had the goat cheese pierogie and to me, they are more akin to ravioli than a pierogi, with thinner pasta. I think that allows them to be used in so many ways, from a Meditereanean preparation, to being cooked and paired with a fruit sauce and nuts.
I can't wait to get back to the Dupont Market!
