True Crottin de Chavignol is produced in France from the raw milk of an alpine breed of goat. For us to import this Crottin, it is made from pasteurized goat's milk. This is one of the rare cheeses that can be eaten at different stages of maturity. Fresh and young, the Crottin is white with a creamy texture and a nutty taste. After a few weeks, the cheese has lost some of its moisture, become harder and more brittle, but still tastes wonderful with the flavors becoming more pronounced. As it ages more, the rind becomes rough and hard, but even in this state you simply grate it over a salad or pasta. The robust taste increases but is never sour. This is Nala's favorite cheese!
