French Goat’s Cheeses – Recipe ideas from chef Sophie Wright

When we think about cooking with cheese we tend to think of using parmesan in our pasta, or some mature cheddar topped on toast, but there are a lot of different recipes out there involving cheese and similarly there are a lot of different cheeses.

In fact in France alone, there are over 1,000 different kinds of cheeses made, that range from Camembert to Époisses and of course the well known goat’s cheese which delight’s everyone’s palate.

This creamy cheese comes in lots of flavours and textures from the mildest soft cheese to the hardest strong cheese and tastes great when baked in the oven and spread on bread. Made all over France and especially in the Loire Valley and Poitou regions, goat’s cheese is great tasting and also makes a fantastic alternative for those that are allergic to cow’s milk.

In this video, chef Sophie Wright shows you just how easy it is to create a simple but tasty goat’s cheese log slice, roasted beetroot and parsnip salad that you can enjoy anytime.
