Malagos Fresh Chevre

Fresh and creamy

This deli¬≠cious cheese from Davao is made by the famed Mala¬≠gos Farm¬≠house, and is fresh and creamy, and a per¬≠fect addi¬≠tion to your cheese board.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Mala¬≠gos Fresh Chevre is made from pas¬≠teur¬≠ized goat‚Äôs milk that is col¬≠lect¬≠ed dai¬≠ly from their dairy. Cloth-drained and hand mold¬≠ed, this fresh cheese has a creamy tangy taste, with earthy hints.

The more it ages, the more its aro¬≠ma and fla¬≠vor sharp¬≠en, and the insides become crumbly and dense.

PREPA­RA­TION AND PAIRINGS

This Mala¬≠gos Farm¬≠house cheese from Davao is a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful addi¬≠tion to your cheese board. Have it with some hon¬≠ey, slices of pear, or some roast¬≠ed walnuts.

You can also put it on toast, or as an ingre­di­ent in your sandwiches.

Pair the Mala¬≠gos Fresh Chevre with a sparkling wine, like this one from Pol Roger.

WHAT’S INNAME

Chevre is a French word that means ‚Äč‚Äúgoat‚Äôs cheese.‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs usu¬≠al¬≠ly a catch-all term for cheeses made from goat‚Äôs milk. Pop¬≠u¬≠lar among old¬≠er peo¬≠ple and chil¬≠dren with low tol¬≠er¬≠ance for cow milk, goat cheese is low¬≠er in fat than cow cheese, and is high¬≠er in vit¬≠a¬≠min A and potas¬≠si¬≠um. Which also makes it a great alter¬≠na¬≠tive for those want¬≠i¬≠ng to eat healthier.

France makes a lot of goat cheese, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly in the Loire Val¬≠ley and Poitou, places where goats were said to have been brought over in the eighth cen¬≠tu¬≠ry by the Moors. French goat cheeses like Bucheron, Picodon, and Valen“ęay are only some of the most popular.

Around the world, there are also many goat cheeses, like Shosha in Tibet, where goats and yaks thrive because of the cli­mate. In Japan, they have Yagi, Lab­neh in the East Mediter­ranean, and Feta in Greece, among others.

Storage Instructions

Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the but¬≠ter draw¬≠er of a refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor, not on the shelves them¬≠selves. This is to help reg¬≠u¬≠late their tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture and humid¬≠i¬≠ty lev¬≠els‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČand pre¬≠vents the for¬≠ma¬≠tion of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their orig¬≠i¬≠nal pack¬≠ag¬≠ing. Chevre should be stored in a lid¬≠ded plas¬≠tic or glass con¬≠tain¬≠er in the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor. Kind¬≠ly pay atten¬≠tion to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Con¬≠sume pri¬≠or to date indicated.
