Every so often I venture over to the local Whole Foods for lunch. In order to get to the surprisingly reasonable buffet items they offer I have to pass the mammoth cheese station. And in that cheese station I often spy these Salt Spring Island goat cheeses topped with various delicious looking edibles. They’re just so perfectly packaged, you just want to pull a spoon our of your pocket and dig in right there. So when I was shopping at our local Loblaws today and spied one I spontaneously threw it in the cart.
I should mention there was no price on it and when I got home my wife found the $14 item on our bill. And she doesn’t even like goat cheese.
But it was worth it. Man is this good goat cheese. Topped with basil leaves and surrounded in olive oil it’s some of the smoothest goat cheese I’ve ever had. There is a nice hint of basil but nothing overpowering. For a $14 treat I can’t complain.
Especially considering I descimated half of the block within 20 minutes.
