Cypress Grove Chevre in California is, to some, the mecca, zion, or holy grail of cheese. Indeed, some of the staff here at Cheese Lovers International (CLI) hold this place very dear to their hearts due to the large variety of exquisite cheeses originating from this cheese haven.
One such cheese is called the "Lamb Chopper." Not to be confused for a cheese one should eat with a lamb meal, this cheese is buttery, nutty gouda-style cheese made from organic sheep's milk. Its semi-firm texture and good meltability make this cheese great whether served at room temperature or cooked into a hot dish. Some of the interns here at CLI like Lamb Chopper served with fruit.
Incidentally, another of our interns is about to eat this cheese with some honey turkey in either a tortilla or some bread (as a sort of sandwich or wrap, if you will). We will let you know how it turns out!
