What is it?

Bûcheron is an aged goat’s milk cheese, traditionally made in the Loire Valley of France, which is encased in light-colored rind and sold in short logs. The texture of Bûcheron resembles brie and is softer near the rind of the log, and it becomes drier (more akin to fresh goat cheese) closer to the center. Its flavor is relatively mild with a distinctive tanginess, and becomes stronger as it ages. Bûcheron is a great cheese for snacking and adding to salads.

Don’t have it?

Substitute another aged goat cheese.
