Champayeur is a soft cheese with a bloomy rind produced according to artisanal processes and similar to certain other goat cheeses such as lactic curd. It has a smooth texture and is mild-tasting but a little chalky. Although this cheese is soft it is not runny. Typical of cow’s milk, its flavour is refined as a result of a rind comprised of a soft blend of cream, fresh butter and mushrooms. Savour it with a cider or a crémant on ice.
“Champayeur is an old French word that means a herd in the pasture.”
