Allium Piper, a goat's milk cheese is a blend of two South Australian products namely 'Woodside Chevre' made from fresh local goats milk and 'Allisford Farm Organic Hand Harvested Garlic'.
Goat milk from Towerview and Oskjberg dairies is used for making the Chevre (meaning Goat in French). After pasteurization the milk is allowed to set using traditional method. Very next day curd is drained for several hours. Very small amount of salt, crushed garlic cloves and little black pepper is added to the curd, and then the mixture is allowed to drain for about 10 days in a controlled environment.
This elegant, fresh, white cheese is perfect for cheese board. There is no intense goaty taste, typically associated with goat milk cheeses. It has a characteristic spicy flavour with notes of garlic and pepper. This delicious cheese can be eaten with crusty bread.
