Are there foods with which you have a love-hate relationship? I can think of several, and near the top of my list is goat cheese.
Sometimes I'll eat it and it'll be perfectly tangy and flavorful, but other times, it tastes as though it's been coated with the stuff you scrape off a filthy fish tank.
Happily, Belle Chevre goat cheese falls firmly into the former category. Though I only tried the honey variety, I'm confident that the other options (everything from coffee- or cinnamon-flavored spreadable breakfast cheese to Tuscan marinated cheese) are just as tasty.
I think the trick to get me to like goat cheese is to mask its true flavor with something I find more enjoyable. Like honey. Or coffee. Or cinnamon. Those folks at Belle Chevre know what they're doing.
They have several partnerships with companies whose products are highly compatible with goat cheese, and one of those is Anna's. They make all kinds of cookie thins, including orange, almond, chocolate mint, and ginger, which I was fortunate enough to try. They were marvelous when paired with the honey Belle Chevre goat cheese (and a plop of pepper jelly!)--truly a match made in heaven!
Want to try some for yourself? You're in luck. I'm giving away two tubs of honey Belle Chevre goat cheese and two boxes of Anna's ginger thins. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me a food with which you have a love-hate relationship. For extra entries, tweet about this giveaway and/or like Belle Chevre and Anna's on Facebook and leave me separate comments telling me you did so.
Good luck! This is a great prize promoting two terrific companies! I'll contact the winner in one week, on Friday, August 17th.
