Is goat cheese the same as chevre?
It sure is! “Chevre” means both “goat” and “goat cheese” in French and is frequently used to refer to fresh goat cheeses in particular. Fresh goat cheese, or chevre, is bright, tart, tangy, and delicious, but goat cheese comes in all shapes, sizes, and ages. We prefer to call our cheese “goat cheese” instead of “chevre” because we’re an American company with American roots — and it’s much easier to understand!
