What, me drunk?

drunken goat cheese + raki

I found this cheese at Whole Foods Market last weekend. I had never had or heard of drunken goat cheese before. I like it. It's soft, feels creamy in one's mouth and has a nice aroma, although I don't know how to describe it. My wife thought it was a cross between feta and kasseri. It went well with a glass of rakı, the national alcoholic beverage of Turkey, known as ouzo to the Greeks.

But to set the record straight, it was the goat who was drunk. I was only tipsy.

I've never heard of drunken goat cheese before. I must watch to see if they sell it at any of the stores up here.

Try the chocolate goat cheese available at Whole Foods... Sounds odd I know, but it's an amazing dessert cheese with sliced apples or strawberries- go variety for a slight tart variety- small in season Gala's would work well... as the cheese is slightly sweet and very rich and creamy.
