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 cheeseā€™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.
