At the beginning of every month, I am offering C&Z readers a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
Our calendar for March is a picture of a chèvre frais cendré — ash-coated fresh goat cheese — taken at a small market stall that was giving away sample slices.
Not everyone realizes that cheese is a seasonal product too, and that artisanal goat cheese can only be made between early spring and early fall, when the goats are lactating to feed their kids. (Fresh goat cheese sold outside of that time period is usually made from frozen milk.)
So this month’s calendar is all about celebrating the arrival of the first rounds of fresh goat cheese. I hope you saved a little of that multigrain starter bread from last month’s calendar to go with it!
Instructions to get your calendar are below.
