Goat Cheese

I must admit, I do not like it at all. Its the WORST tasting cheese I have ever had. I will take a piece of farmer cheese, cream cheese or fresh ricotta before Goat Cheese anyday. But, if someone can give me a recipe that would change my thoughts as well as my taste for it, I'm willing to change.

Deb, here are some recipes that were given to me on here a while back when I had some goat cheese. The only one I got to try was the Apple and Goat Cheese Clafoutis from Rainne & it was delcious! I hope this helps you out some! http://www.discusscooking.com/viewtopic.php?t=3356

Its a shame that the cheese just does not have it to stand on its own TO ME. When I was given it on a cracker, plain, it was a terrible experience. I can eat PLAIN cream cheese, fresh ricotta or farmer cheese or just about ANY cheese I can think of except Goat Cheese.
Thanks for the recipes.

There are hundreds of different kinds of goat cheese with a wide variety of tastes and textures, just like there are hundreds of different kinds of cow's milk and/or sheep's milk cheese.

Maybe try a harder aged goat's milk cheese, like Pau or a nice goat gouda.

A good cheese store will have tons. Zabars and Fairway have great selections ... then there is Murray's :D :D They always let you sample, too! :D

I'm with jennyema, Deb - There are hundreds of different goat cheeses, and unfortunately some of them are pretty inferior due to mass production.

Take a holiday trip in to the 'City', and visit some of the stores she mentioned to do a tasting experiement - I'll bet you find one that 'wows' you!

I love this type of salad..I make a dressing w/raspberry vinegr, walnut oil and a hit of maple syrup. During the wk I just crumble the cheese.
