Chevre is French for Goat's cheese i.e. cheeses made out of goat's milk. Also, goat cheeses are lower in fat and higher in vitamin A and potassium.
Goat cheeses have a unique, tart, earthy flavor that sets them apart from cow cheeses. This distinctive tang and aroma grows robust and bold as it ages. Milk production of goats, unlike of cow’s, is seasonal from mid-March through October. Only a few kinds of cheese are aged beyond four months and they cannot be frozen without loss of quality. Considering the availability of limited milk production, experiments are on to make cheeses from frozen goat milk curd.
The flavor and aroma of goat cheese rely upon its moisture, density, aging, and flavoring. It can feature a soft, semisoft, firm, or hard texture that indicates its moisture content. They come in many sizes and shapes, such as round patties, log-shapes, drum-shaped, pyramids, round loaves, long loaves etc. Chevres are excellent dessert cheeses, often served as snacks or before dinner drinks.
