WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Product Review: Crumbled Goat Cheese, Private Selection


Oh, goat cheese, how I love your smooth, pungent flavor.

This was my first time purchasing the Private Selection Crumbled Goat Cheese -- at Fry's here in the southwest. You can get it at Kroger elsewhere.

The ingredients noted are very, very simple: Pasteurized goat milk, salt, cheese cultures, enzymes, powdered cellulose (to prevent caking). And the 4 ounces may seem like a small sampling, but it was the perfect size.

One of the things that frustrated me about goat cheese is you generally will find way to much in a package. Like, really, am I going to eat 8 ounces of goat cheese before it expires three days after I open it? No. Not ever.

But I appreciated the handy container with its fairly tight seal. Also, 4 ounces is much more economical. The cost -- something like $4. Nice, modest price.

I found that the goat cheese was much milder than expected, though. Not even a mild hint of sharpness. And it was wondrously soft and creamy, but certainly not as creamy as a more authentic brand.

It is fitting for a flatbread, which is how I used it, and would go well on a salad or with fresh fruit, but certainly not on a cheese board and not any kind of cracker. It's flavor holds OK, but it simply is not as versatile as other goat cheese brand. But I would certainly buy it again.
