Cheese: Chabichou

Chabichou

Chabichou

This pasteurized goat cheese, granted AOC protection relatively recently in 1990, comes from the Poitou region just south of the western Loire Valley. It is the model for well liked, crinkly-rinded Chevrot, though Chabichou’s shape is taller and thinner and the pate is usually denser. Balanced texture and richness combined with sweet, rather than mineral, flavors are often pleasant surprises for goat-wary tasters. A dry, slatey white might throw these pleasant traits into contrast, and the petit chevre would make a lovely centerpiece for a dish of fresh cherries.
