-- ELKMONT, AL (March 31, 2012)— Belle Chevre announced the release of a new 6 oz tub of Original Spreadable Goat Cheese, a creamy goat cheese with a pure, clean flavor. This cheese is fresh and soft, perfect for spreading, dipping, spooning and substituting in any recipe.
Lower in fat and calories than comparative cow’s milk products, this original spreadable cheese easily takes the place of ricotta, cream cheese, cottage cheese or fresh mozzarella in any dish. It’s perfect for breakfast, spread on toast with honey or jam. Or take it to lunch and use it instead of mayo on a sandwich. More ideas on the use of this healthy cheese can be found on www.cookwithchevre.com , home to the e-book 50 Things To Do With Chevre.
The Original spreadable goat cheese has won an unprecedented number of first place awards from the American Cheese Society (under its previous moniker, fromage blanc). The new packaging is both attractive AND biodegradable. It has been lauded by credible media nationwide, such as myrecipes.com, Cooking Light, Oprah, and more. Southern Living (“Cooking With Cheese”) deems it “delicious when served with pear or apple slices. “
Fromage blanc is made without any aging; it is simply goat’s milk that has been put through the cheesemaking process before being drained for a couple hours. All in all, it takes less than half a day to turn milk into this freshest of the fresh cheeses.
“If I could only have one cheese, this would be it,” says president Tasia Malakasis. “It’s the basis of many of our most popular items, like our honey breakfast cheese and pimento chevre.” All of Belle Chevre’s products can be purchased online at www.bellechevre.com or in grocery stores nationwide.
Belle Chevre has produced a variety of internationally acclaimed chevres since 1989 using time-tested European farmstead techniques. The company is purposefully small, and each chevre is hand made in Alabama by its passionate cheese makers. Belle Chevre cheeses have received numerous national awards from the American Cheese Society and the American Dairy Goat Association, and have been featured by Martha Stewart, Oprah, and everyone in between.
