Bucherone is a soft cheese made from pasteurized goatâ€™s milk. This cheese is aged for 2 months, during which time it develops a firm, edible crust complete with a bloomy white rind. It is creamy and almost translucent under the rind, but fudgy and flaky at the center, reflecting the progressive breakdown of the cheese's protein and fat. The ivory interior is smooth, dense, uniform and free of eyes. Though not very aromatic, the creamy texture is pleasing, without any pastiness. The salt is appropriate and the finish tangy and slightly earthy.
