Got Chevre?: West End Dairy Farm’s Cheese Stands Alone | Southern Pines, NC

Photo by Hannah Sharpe

Chevre is a friendly cheese. Fear it not.

Pronounce the first syllable in Chevrolet. Add a slightly guttural “r.” Easy.

Chevre, made from goats’ milk in the Loire Valley since 700 A.D., is not stinky, either, like countrymen Roquefort and bleu. No moldy rind to deal with, a la Camembert. In fact, chevre tastes quite at home on a New York bagel.

“It’s very mild,” Hunter Stovall reassured a grimacing gawker at the Saturday farmers market in Southern Pines. “Here, try some.”

Chevre also feels quite at home in West End,

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
