The Flavor Experience
Named for its shape, a log, that promotes the ideal ratio of ripe creamline and flaky center, and is just the right form to slice off big slabs, Bucheron is the bloomy-rind goat cheese that taught you to love, perhaps obsess over, this style. With a texture that will crumble when you need crumbles and spread when you need spreading, the bright grassiness of its fudgy paste and tender rind remind you why we just can’t stop talking about goat cheese.
Bucheron was one of the first French goat cheeses exported to the United States, kickstarting a national obsession with the traditional Loire Valley style of chevre. Sevre at Belle, a dairy cooperative in the Loire Valley adjacent Poitou-Charentes, has been making Bucheron for over a century. Where would our nation’s roasted beets and mixed green salads be without these guys?
So, you need a goat cheese for a recipe AND one for snacking? Presenting Bucheron, the remarkable two-in-one! Spread Bucheron on long slices of baguette and send them to toast under the broiler. Served piping hot or at a comfortable room temperature, these goat-toasts are the perfect garnish for any salad, from the simple greens-and-dressing to that busy with nuts and dried fruits. Roasted vegetables, regardless of the season, become vivid with a crumble and toss of Bucheron. Cut beautiful rounds for a cheese board and serve with a dark honey like the resinous Rigoni Italian Forest Honey, and some toasted walnuts.
