Lesson 16: How To Make Cheese Course | How To Make Goat Cheese/Chèvre
Chèvre is just French for goat cheese, so if somebody says that are learning how to make chèvre, you turn to them and say, “This is ‘Merica!”
No. Don't do that.
Goat milk cheeses have a wonderful tart flavor that sets them apart from cow milk cheeses. It is creamy, chalky, beautiful stuff. Louella first learned how to make goat cheese while working on a goat farm, and she gleefully admits to eating it morning, noon, and night during that time. Goat's milk is also much more similar to human milk at the molecular level, and many people who have sensitivities to traditional cow milk find it a welcome alternative (so much so that even large chain grocery stores are beginning to carry goat milk more regularly). This wonderfully fun goat cheese recipe is very easy to follow, making it a perfect cheese making course for beginners.
Fun fact: Goat cheese softens when exposed to heat, although it does not melt in the same way many cow cheeses do. Goats are awesome.
