Camembert de Chevre by Le Petite Princesse: Review

A soft cheese very much at the milder less ‘goaty’ end of goat cheeses, wrapped in lovely designed package. The Barossa Valley Cheese Company and reputed cheesemaker Vicky McClurg are the force behind Camembert de Chevre by Le Petite Princesse. For those how are put of by goat’s cheese’s by the intensity of ‘goaty’ flavour, be assured this is not a cheese of this type. The flavour here in this soft white cheese is extremely mild. the whoite colured paste tastes a bit mineral with a bit of cauliflower and maybe hint of lemon (?) with gentle salt and acidity.

Cow’s milk soft cheese? Silver Wattle by Long Paddock: Victorian lactic cheese, this time from Castlemaine. Sold in bigger portions. Superb when ripe. Chamela by Butterfly Factory: The other lactic cheese from Gippsland. Or Prom Country Indulgence: seasonal cow’s milk cheese with a great range of textures.

Boatshed “Tempest” Buffalo Blue : Light style brie, made from buffalo milk in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Divine stuff.

Medium or light bodied aromatics white wine, or fizz. If you are going to drink a red, then try young pinot. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.
