Sweet Grass Lumiere

I have just tasted some of the most extraordinary goat’s milk cheese. I’m a longtime fan of Humboldt Fog from California, but I have to say that Cypress Grove has a worthy rival from Georgia in the form of Sweet Grass Farms’ Lumiere cheese.
The Lumiere is a moist, delicious goat’s cheese with a crisp taste and soft texture. The goats milk is coated and layered with French grapevine ash which the makers claim counteracts the goat cheese’s natural acidity. It is then aged for about three weeks where it blossoms into a beautiful lemon hinted cheese.
If you likes chevre and other goat’s milk cheeses then this is guaranteed to please. Pair with a good french bread and quality glass of wine for the perfect meal.
