Cheese: Week Thirteen

Bijou and Bonne Bouche goat cheeses just slid into my top five. Seriously guys, I can't possibly do these justice. So head over to the Vermont Creamery to read what someone who can speak eloquently about cheese has to say about them. Bonne Bouche Bijou My friends Sarah and Rachel joined us this week. Despite a gaggle of snack-seeking children, we managed to slather bite after bite onto pieces of warm bread. So good! Can I admit something? This is the type of cheese I wouldn't have bought last year. I was curious, but never brave enough to try. I'm glad I've gotten over it, because I've discovered that these particular types of goat cheeses are my favorite. It makes me wonder what else I am missing. PS. So about that third cheese up there on the left? Yeah, that was a goat brie. But in a part blonde/part exhausted/part tipsy moment, I threw away the label. No idea who makes it, but it was also good.

Sometimes its best to eat first, ask questions later. I am a bit food shy myself, even though I work in the biz.I went to a high-end food show last week and found that I did much better at trying new things if I did not know what they were until after I ate them (within reason, of course). Also, it doesn't hurt to get liquored up. Love your cheese posts! They make me want to be more adventurous.

I like this idea of putting the labels on the cheeseboard! I always forget what the cheese was as soon as I throw away the label too.

Dear Mrs. Oh, how I love my Butter,
Now I know nothing can compare to le beurre in France – but Vermont Creamery does make some fantastic butter – I have seen 3 types – salted, unsalted (used this to make a french tarte and it was buttery perfect – great in cookies too) and sea salt (great to but on fresh french bread or to saute)
I hope you give it a try and provide us with your review. I'd love to see if it passes the grade with you.
ps – Some Whole Foods carry it.

We just started serving the Bonne Bouche at the restaurant where I work, and oh my goodness, if it's not the dreamiest cheese I've ever tasted!
