The Goat Cheese Truffle Collection

Old Goat Cheese CollectionPosted by Jasmine

This summer, Hedonist has introduced a unique collection for summer and fall. The combination of cheese and chocolate is unusual, but we think you'll find it very tasty. Our five Goat Cheese truffles, featuring Finger Lakes chevre cheese from Lively Run Goat Dairy, are quite special and have become some of the most popular items in our shop this season.

‘Chevre’ is the French word for ‘goat’, and is a generic term used for cheese made from the milk of goats. The chevre we use is creamy and smooth, similar to cream cheese in texture. The cheese is all-natural, with no preservatives or artificial additives. Smooth yet powerful, goat cheese has a savory flavor that goes nicely with chocolate.

Since 1982, Lively Run Goat Dairy has produced all-natural goat cheese on their farm located between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes in central New York. Part of Hedonist’s inspiration to create the Goat Cheese Collection was of the owner’s passion for her product. We also wanted to incorporate more local ingredients into our products, and Lively Run’s high quality and delicious cheese was the perfect way to do that.

The truffles in the Goat Cheese Collection are: Black Currant, Chile Cinnamon, Strawberry Balsamic, Fig and Honey, and Thyme Pepper Pistachio. Although Hedonist has made a few different truffles with goat cheese in the past, this is the first full collection to feature the savory creaminess of chevre cheese.

Hedonist’s Goat Cheese Collection is currently available at our South Wedge kitchen. When the weather cools down in September, you'll also be able to order them from our website. If you absolutely must have them shipped during the summer, you can call us at 585-461-2815 and we will personally handle your order to ensure that it arrives safely.

Pleasure, handcrafted. Hedonist Artisan Chocolates are handmade with fresh ingredients to give as gifts or indulge yourself.
