Goat cheese is an amazingly versatile ingredient that enhances any course of a meal. Known to the French as “fromage de chevre,” goat cheese has slowly but surely made its way onto American menus and dinner tables.

This is a charming introduction to using goat cheese in your everyday cooking. With a short history of this versatile ingredient and a description of how it’s made, this book features profiles of all the varieties and tips for storing, serving and cooking.

From tempting appetizers such as Grilled Eggplant and Goat Cheese Rolls to satisfying entrees like Gnocchi with Spinach and Goat Cheese to luscious desserts, including Poached Winter Pears with Sweet Goat Cheese. Charmingly illustrated and complete with a guide to the many varieties of goat cheese.
