Caprin 6/10Oz P, Jacquin (P)
(Imported Cheeses: France)
Fresh, rindless goats' milk cheese, coated with flavorless vegetable ash, from the respected Fromagerie P. Jacquin in Berry, in the Poitou region of France. When it's young, the color is bright white, the texture is moist, flaky and crumbly, and the flavor is clean and lactic. As it ages, some harmless blue or white molds may develop on the rind and the texture will dry out and firm up, resulting in a more piquant, nutty flavor. Its petite size makes it ideal for any retail case (full- or self-serve), as well as food-service applications, as it can be used for salad, pizza or hors d'oeuvres.
