I can remember the first time my son brought "Drunken Goat Cheese" to my home. Thanksgiving and this was something he brought. I love cheese, all kinds of cheese - but never heard of this kind before. After a taste - I fell in love with it. Sure did not know it is one of the most expensive cheese you can purchase. So when I buy a very small piece - I will not be sharing!!!!
The only place near me that sells it is Whole Foods in Nashville. On my recent visit I bought a small portion. Because of the price, being solo (do not plan on sharing :) I picked out the smallest section. I asked the young man behind the cheese counter if he could tell me something about the cheese? His answer "it's a goat cheese" :)
That was not a sufficient answer for this One Woman --so---just looked up some information about this tasty product. Comes from the Village of Jumilla - Murcia region of Spain (area sure foreign to this lady). Drunken Goat refers to the fact that it is soaked in red wine for 3 days and that is why the rind of the cheese is a shade of red.
The cheese is wrapped well and sitting in the refrigerator. When I feel like treating myself I will have a slice with some special crackers. Might even have a glass of wine.
Is there anyone that reads my journal other then family, familiar with this cheese? It took me over 60 years to learn about this cheese :)
Wherever you are on this planet - have a wonderful day.
Happy, well, safety and peace - wishes sent your way.
