Today I am going to tell you about Casino’s Fromage de chevre. Casino is a French supermarket chain where we bought some of our supplies when camping in the Alps this year Fromage that’s cheese de /of Chevre goat. .
I do not find it ever so easy choosing foods in a French supermarket as I do not want to choose exactly the same products as at home. This cheese was displayed on an aisle with other cheese; I find it easier to choose from chilled shelf than have to ask for what I want. There were a lot of cheeses on display and I realised how much more expensive food was in France this year as compared with visits previous years. A lot of the cheese was expensive. I choose the fromage de chevre as it was not maybe the cheapest but a price I thought ok. I am sorry I can not correctly remember how much I paid but looking online I found on a casino sight that 180g fromage de chevre costs £2,63euros
>Packaging This goat’s cheese comes in a round card pack 10cm in diameter 3cm thick. It has a picture of a goat standing in a grassy field with a blue sky background Inside was a foil pack enclosing a disk of goat’s cheese.
> Product We were sitting in a grassy Alpine meadow for our lunch and I opened the box. .The cheese is cased in a white waxed coating to protect it (like the sort you get on Brie). The cheese is a white creamy colour
I cut a hole into the cheese and removed some including the white waxed exterior to hubby he put it on his French bread. I do not like the coating so I put some of the cheese onto my bread.
The cheese was soft very soft in the hot French sunshine the cheese was almost runny. So most of this cheese was eaten like a cheese dip.
>Smell This cheese did not smell strong it had a light creamy cheesy smell
This cheese is a lovely gentle mild flavour. I was very happy with it. Hubby said he thought it was OK.
>contents 180 grams cheese made from goats cheese. It is pasteurised has some salt added. There are 88calories per30g
> Storage and use
This cheese does need to be kept cool in a fridge. However we did not have a fridge in our tent so we ate it all the same day we ate it.
Although I could not try any on a single camping gaz there are many recipes at http://uktv.co.uk/food/ingredient/aid/506709
Recommendation Enough that if I were to be buying cheese in France again I would choose this one .
