Goat Cheese


If it were up to us, we’d be pac-man and cheese would be our pac-dots. Never have we said « no thanks » to cheese – well unless it looks like this, but let’s be honest, this isn’t cheese.

Since our mum is from Normandy and our dad German/Swiss, we grew up munching on all sorts of Camembert and fondue. We particularly enjoy drunken cheese and like our Camembert drenched in Calvados and our fondue seasoned with beer and kirsch.

We spend most of our time exploring the world for new stinky delights – as demonstrated here and here: (check #7).

Our biggest challenge as of yet, is not ordering the cheese platter at a restaurant. You see, since we are food bloggers, we are meant to get an overall taste of an eatery’s cuisine, and yet, we often blow our opportunity and order wine and cheese *sigh.

We’ve written plenty on the subject (https://www.dontbelieveinjetlag.com/More/cheese/) and would love to write more *ahem.


And we did, thanks to Culture Cheese Magazine and Goat Cheeses of France, who sent us two – very generous portions of – French goat cheese. We were asked to both incorporate them into a recipe and pair them with a homemade condiment, so we rolled up our sleeves and started cooking.

Here are our recipes to the White Pizzeta with Valençay, Zucchini and Spicy Honey:


and the Green Tomato and Ginger Jam with Tomme de Chèvre Bethmale:
