Goats go mainstream: Cheese, kefir and yogurt all offer benefits — and flavor

Goats go mainstream: Cheese, kefir and yogurt all offer benefits — and flavor | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
It wasn’t that long ago that goat-milk cheese was an exotic ingredient like truffles or caviar imported from far away, but now it’s almost become a cliché of California cooking. That’s not so bad, for goat cheese — or chèvre — is tasty and perhaps even a little healthier than cow-milk products.

Have some chocolate with your cheese !

Have some chocolate with your cheese ! | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
While most folks think that chocolate best expresses affections on Valentine’s Day, at Lucy’s Whey we tend to believe that cheese does a better job. Knowing that we’re not about to change the hearts and minds of chocolate lovers on a day devoted to the comestible, we compromised by holding a chocolate and cheese pairing class the day before Valentine’s Day. To no one’s surprise, it was met with quite good reception.

How To Get A Cheese Education

How To Get A Cheese Education | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

This week, I’m thinking about a question from a reader named Mia. She wants to live the golden dream -- to work in the cheese world as either a maker or a monger. She wrote to me asking how to gain experience. When I put the question out on Twitter recently, several cheesemongers fired right back: "Tell her to get a job at a cheese counter!"

On a Cheese-Selecting Mission With Alain Ducasse

On a Cheese-Selecting Mission With Alain Ducasse | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

If you've ever noticed, critics rarely rate the greatness of a restaurant based on its cheese selection, which is not only the least-mentioned food component but also the one that can so easily go wrong. Half the battle to serving cheese properly is ensuring that it is kept at optimum condition, a task French chef Alain Ducasse takes great joy in.

A Vermont Coulommiers

A Vermont Coulommiers | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

Last week, a beautiful Coulommiers descended from the air. It arrived from Vermont in a cardboard pizza box, and for several days I simply peeked at it, delighted to have a whole wheel at my disposal. Truth be told, I was a little scared to try it. My last encounter with Coulommiers was so memorable — it was smuggled in from France — that I was afraid this wheel wouldn’t match up.
