Squishy, silky Fiacco di Capra has pungent kick – SFGate

Janet Fletcher writes,

All my years of Italian language study couldn’t help me with Fiacco di Capra. I had to reach for the dictionary to learn that fiacco means tired.

Now you know, too, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that Fiacco di Capra is tired goat cheese. Like other pungent washed-rind cheeses, it’s alive and kicking.

Made in the Northern Italian region of Lombardy, Fiacco di Capra springs from the same tradition as Stracchino, a semisoft cow’s-milk square with a long history in the region.

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.
