Featured Cheese of The Week: Maple Chevre from Boston Post Dairy
With sugaring season come and gone, we thought it would be appropriate this week to feature a local cheese which uses the sweet Vermont staple in a thoroughly delicious way: Boston Post Dairy’s Maple Cream Chèvre. Don’t be confused by the name: this cheese does not come from Boston but hails from Enosburg Falls,Vermont, and the name was inspired by the Old Boston Post Stagecoach road which runs through the property. Family-owned and run by the Gervais family, the farm hosts seventy dairy goats whose milk has been transformed into fresh, pasteurized cheese since only 2010, and visitors to the farm are able to see this magic happen through their cheeseroom viewing windows. Their maple cream chèvre is available seasonally, and now is the season to try this slightly tangy, super creamy, and delightfully sweet fresh cheese which uses both maple syrup and maple cream! The balance of sweet and savory in this cheese is such that we can recommend it for many uses, such as an unforgettable cheesecake, toasted on a baguette, spooned into a sweet soup, or simply paired with fruits and nuts.
