Humboldt Fog is one of the most popular goat cheeses manufactured in the United States. Made by the Cyprus Grove Chevre company, in Humboldt County, California, Humboldt Fog is soft-ripened goat cheese manufactured in small wheels that weigh about 15 ounces. It is named for the early morning fog that it typical of the area. Similar in texture to a French Bucheron, Humboldt Fog has a fairly dense pate that is bright white in color, tangy in flavor, and fairly crumbly in texture. In the center is a layer of edible ash that is reminiscent of Morbier. The ivory-colored ring just beneath the ash-covered rind is softer and creamier with a stronger flavor.
