Shipping Notes

This goat's milk blue cheese is made in the same region as the well known Italian Taleggio cheese.  The texture is dense and creamy with a flavor similar to gorgonzola with the slight tang typical of goat cheese.  This is a rindless cheese that is made with pasteurized goat's milk that is inoculated with penicillium roqueforti then matured for approx. 90 days.

A thick cheese with a rich texture, it crumbles well but can be spread with a knife. Capra Verde is an excellent cheese to cook with. Crumble it over fresh greens and top with balsamic vinaigrette, or melt in on a beefy burger.  Capra Verde also does a great job standing alone as part of a cheese platter; accompany it with nuts and crackers.

If you are looking for a wine pairing, many different wines will fit the bill. A fruity red wine or a nutty aged wine would both do the trick as well. If you are feeling adventurous, try it with a dessert wine like Muscat.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
