Spring is still on the jump and with it are goats and their cheeses!
We @formaggiastic are big fans of fresh as well as aged goat cheeses and over the course of the upcoming weeks will take you on a deep dive into the world of these white beauties. But before we start with mouth-watering examples, here some basic facts about goats, their milk, and their cheeses.

Besides eating,photographing, reading and dreaming cheese – traveling cheese is what Gustav and I maybe like to do best. After all it combines all of the above with seeing new places, meeting new people as well as getting together with old friends.
When in February we are all longing for a soon spring to come. And with spring finally arrives the time of farmstead goat cheese.

* Stinking Bishop * – is not, as the name might imply, a rebellious monks invention of the middle ages who created a cheese whose name was to hint on his bishops doubtful fragrance. In fact it is a creation of the 20th century and was brought to life by English artisan cheesemakers Charles Martell &Son Ltd. in 1994.
When thinking of Lombardy one thinks of Milan or, in terms of cheese, probably of famous PDOs like Gorgonzola and Taleggio. But it wouldn´t be Italy if the obvious wouldn´t be escorted by an uncountable variety of more hidden wonders and gems.
