Bonne Bouche — French for “tasty little bite,” this is an ash-ripened, artisan goat cheese made by hand in the traditional French style. Bonne Bouche is sweet and gentle in flavor with a very creamy texture. Bijou — This fresh-ripened, soft-aged artisan goat cheese is made in the style of the French “crottin.” A fabulous mild balance of sweet and sour, it is wonderful served warm on a baguette with a salad. Couple — This delicate, hand-shaped cheese looks like a snow-covered dome. Mild and dense with a slightly creamy center, it can be eaten young, or the flavor can be allowed to strengthen over time.$OMN_arttitle="new products";?>
