Chèvre d'Or is a living cheese. It is not wrapped and can ripen slowly, gaining in character. The texture also develops from creamy soft to flaky as the cheese ages. Naturally the flavours also develop from smooth to powerful. After three weeks it becomes dry and crumbly.
Here is an easy delicious recipe for a tomato, basil and Le Pizy cheese loaf. It is called "Cake" inspired by the recipes "Les Cakes de Sophie" by Sophie Dudemaine. I think these cakes are great in the summer time served with salads and they are ideal to take along for a picnic.
Rogue River Blue is an award winning blue cheese, which is wrapped with chestnut leaves that have marinated in pear brandy. This raw cow's milk, natural rind, blue cheese is aged between eight and twelve months and has a moist creamy texture with crunchy granular bits. The flavours are quite complex with notes of burnt cream, coffee, ripened berries and a lingering sweet note of pear brandy. Heavenly!
