Goat cheese or Chevre cheese is made from goat's milk. If can be found in a soft from such as cream cheese that is easy to spread or a harder cheese that is easy to crumble. Goat cheese is often used in many elegant dishes including desserts. I have to be honest, I sometimes use grated cheddar cheese as we love the strong taste.
