The Invasion of the Bees – Laura Chenel’s Chèvre Honey Log

HoneyGoat54

Honey Bear loves honey goat cheese!

Soft, tangy, and honey sweet with a hint of orange, Laura Chenel’s Chèvre with Honey satisfies all around. It’s as if a honey bee came straight from the orange orchard and landed on a little log of chèvre. This honey goat cheese marries the traditional French technique of fine fresh goat cheese making with California’s Sonoma County terroir. Its delicate texture and mild flavor make it an excellent breakfast or dessert cheese. And it comes with a pedigree.

Orange blossom honey has a faint flavor of citrus and is excellent when blended with fresh goat cheese.

Laura Chenel, a pioneer of American goat cheese, revolutionized the American cheese scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s with her goat cheese. Laura Chenel’s Chèvre represents the harmonious blend of French technique and Sonoma terroir.

California’s orange trees are full of tiny white flowers in the spring. The bees feast on the blooms, and then return to the hive to make the fragrant nectar that will flavor the Honey Log. The delicate touch of citrus and the light sweetness give this goat a balance created purely by Mother Nature.
