The Laura Chenel Cabecou is a delightful disc of soft, barely aged goat’s cheese marinated in California extra–virgin olive oil, rosemary, thyme and black peppercorns. This award–winning California original is densely creamy and is an excellent cheese to keep on hand as it can elevate any dish. Delicious served with bread, over roasted veggies or with fresh tomatoes, use it as a base for many meals. I like to toss the whole jar in a salad; the flavorful olive oil acts as a dressing and the cheese crumbles nicely into a perfect topping. Locally made in Sonoma County, Laura Chenel has been producing some of the best goat cheese in America since 1980.
