Cheese Profile - Redwood Hill Traditional Chèvre

Friday, May 16, 2008

Redwood Hill has been around since the late 1960's and has been happily situated in the heart of the Sonoma County. They're dairy goats are raised on mostly organic feed, raised humanely and free range, and treated with the utmost care. They make a delicious feta cheese, but personally I'm a fan of the soft creamy cheeses they produce.

Type: Goat

Taste: The goaty flavor you normally expect from a chèvre was almost absent. It's light and airy, with a nice smooth texture and almost tastes and feels like a whipped cream cheese. A lighthearted cheese that can please any palate.

Serve With: This is a cheese for smearing on bread, or maybe layered with a bit of honeydew melon a sliver of prosciutto. I also feel that smeared on a strawberry it would be a match made in heaven. The cheese is also more flavorful than cream cheese and has far less fat, making it a perfect substitute for any bagel. Incorporating it into a variety of dips and spreads could open up a wide variety of possibilities. This cheese is also idyllic for any picnic or outdoor setting. I'm told a nice Chardonnay or a Muscadet from the Loire Valley is a perfect wine pairing.

  2. Hmmm....I see I'll be placing an order.
