What Does Goat Cheese Taste Like?

Over 35 goat cheese recipes to choose from for your next party.

Like most cheese, the longer you age the cheese the more intense the flavor.

Some claim it tastes tangy while others say it tastes mild with sweet notes.

In addition to age having an effect on the flavor, where the milk came from has some influence as well.

Different breeds of goats have varying degrees of fat content in their milk. What they forage on, and even the process of milking all play a role in the taste of the end product.

Take Nigerian Dwarf Goats for instance, they have some of the highest fat content of all the dairy goats and their milk has a slightly sweet taste.

It’s one of the reasons why we love raising Nigerian Dwarf Goats, their milk is superb.

If you are hesitant to try goat cheese, I would suggest sampling it in one of our goat cheese appetizer recipes. Small, delicious bites of cheese blended with other sweet and savory ingredients.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

What Does Goat Cheese Go Well With?

Goat cheese goes well with everything from Pizza to Desserts. It’s a good replacement in recipes that call for blue cheese too!

Add it to your favorite pasta dish, or roll it in cranberries and herbs for a quick and easy appetizer.

We love topping our salads with feta cheese made with goat milk.

The surprising part about goat cheese is how well it compliments sweet dishes. I never would have paired goat cheese with dessert recipes, but it works!

Without sounding redundant, it truly is a versatile cheese.
