Bucheron is a bloomy-rind goat cheese that is produced in the Loire Valley in France. It has a bright white and fairly dense pate that crumbles yet is creamy while eaten. The ivory-colored ring just beneath the rind is softer and creamier with a fresh and tangy flavor. The cheese is produced in long 3 to 4 pound logs and also hails the name Buche de Chevre. This cheese is great with honey and crackers, crumbled into a salad, or eaten with fresh fruit.
