Rove des Garrigues

This cheese is named after the Rove breed of goat, native to the Mediterranean.  As well as being a rare breed, the Rove goats produce very little milk each day – less than half of the average amount of other goat breeds.  Their milk, however, is extraordinarily rich and flavorsome, with hints of thyme and lavender from the wild herbs naturally included in their diet.  The small dome-like, delicate cheese is pure white with a soft, melt-in-your-mouth sensation upon tasting.  The herbal notes are there as is a lovely lemony tang.

How to Enjoy:

Lovely on it’s own, it is a totally charming piece on a cheeseboard or plate.  Lovely on the side of a spinach and frise salad. Match the terroir by pairing with a Provence rose.
