The Lincoln Log is one of the first mold-ripened cheeses we started making here at Zingerman’s Creamery, and has always been one of our favorites. This bûcheron-inspired goat cheese was one of our most requested cheeses in the early days of theCreamery, and we think we’ve done this French classic some justice. Made with pasteurized goats milk, the Log develops a nice bloomy white rind that envelops a dense, velvety paste which embodies some hints of citrus and a bit of mushroom inthe finish. We use kid rennet to make this goat cheese, which we feel imparts a unique texture to the finished cheese.
One great way to serve the Lincoln Log is to slice some in 1/4 inch pieces, add some piquillo peppers, and drizzle with some good olive oil. Stick these under the broiler for about fifteen seconds and you’ve got a great, quick appetizer. The warming enhances the goat flavor and it’s very good on a crusty baguette. The Logs are also great when crumbled into a field green salad or on homemade pizza.

A Little Something About The Lincoln Log
As the months get colder we start turning toward more robust, aged cheeses to pair with the heartier fare gracing our tables. Above you can check out a concise video of how we make our Lincoln Log, one of our go-to favorites for any number of Fall dishes.
We at Zingerman’s Creamery are dedicated to crafting handmade cheeses and gelato using traditional methods to both honor the rich tradition of the art of cheesemaking and create the most full-flavored products we can. Using locally sourced milk from Calder Dairy, Schneider Family Organic Dairy and others, low-temperature pasteurization, and lots of time to draw out and enhance the amazing flavors of the milk, we make our cheese and gelati to-order every week for our wholesale customers and our Cheese Shop in Ann Arbor, MI. We think all of that adds up to cheese and gelato with flavor that truly stands out. But while we may think you can really taste the difference, the only taste that truly matters is your own. We’d love to share a taste of what is exciting us for the day, or something that looks intriguing to you, whatever it is, everything you buy from us is 100% guaranteed. If you aren’t happy with your purchase, just let us know and we’ll get you another slice or scoop on us, or refund your hard-earned cash!
