That looks really yum!! I've not been on the site in a while. Life has been really hectic. I've still been making cheese, though..and (shamefaced) lurking here, too.
I'm making chaource today. It's been a cheese-making weekend for me. Caerphilly, Tomme, Asiago, Manchego & now Chaource...rather, will be starting tomorrow. I love crottin, too. I go back & forth making crottin & chaource. I've a soft spot for the these cheeses as they're nearly instant gratification. And the taste..mmm.
I almost gave up on them the first few times I made them, but after reading the posts here, understanding the cultures (my first attempt was almost a disaster-2nd was better, after help from iratherfly
) , I considered it a personal challenge. And didn't regret it!
I'm going to have to wait til next year for some crottin. Alas, only one source for goat's milk around here for me.
Congrats! It looks sooo tempting.
