Seal Cove Chevrotin

Hard, dusty, sweet, yeasty and a piercing, pineapple scent, this Chevrotin from Maine is a treat.

Seal Cove Chevrotin 1


Seal Cove Farm started in 1976 with a pair of very productive dairy goats. In 200 they traveled to France to learn French techniques and the diversity and variety of makes exploded. Over 37 years the herd and the eventual cheesemaking has expanded to a busy farmstead operation. Seal Cove produces almost two dozen fresh and aged chèvre as well as mixed milk varieties.

Their Chevrotin  ages at least six months, with the result a hard, dry and flaking goat cheese with a sharp nose yet milder flavor. It’s herbal and yeasty, sweet and tangy like plain yogurt. You could readily grate Chevrotin to give a butternut squash and fresh chèvre  agnolotti  an extra zing. Chevrotin is available in a small or medium-sized drum, I sampled the diminutive example.

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.
