Chestnut Little Napoleon
RENNET Animal Rennet
INGREDIENTS Pasteurized Goat's Milk, Chestnut Leaves
This lovely little package of goat's milk goodness starts off identical to our classic Little Napoleon, but just as soon as the cheese starts to develop a rind we wrap it in some Michigan chestnut leaves soaked in a mix of Michigan red wines. Aside from looking amazing, the leaves alter the taste and texture of this little goat round, giving it an amazing density and a tangy finish. One of our absolute favorites for the holidays, and a focal point of any cheese tray.
An excellent and visually attractive cheese, the Chestnut Little Napoleon makes an excellent table cheese, and pairs wonderfully with all sorts of breads, flatbreads, and crackers. We like this cheese with a subtle, less hoppy ale or any kind of sparkling wine.
