pure goat cheese

Light, medium aged, unpressed raw goat's milk cheese made in the mountains of the Valtellina, in the old fashioned way. It comes in a large flat cylinder, the rind stamped with a goat as a sign of authenticity.

It's a white, sweet table cheese, best eaten at room temperature, and good with red wine or as a substitute for Fontina on polenta.
