'I guarantee this will be the best chevre you've ever tasted', my Orange Grove Farmer's Markets tour guide and twitter friend, Karen Lateo, announced as she introduced me to Glenn Barringham and the Willowbrae Chevre Cheese stall. One nibble of the fresh curd and Peter and I were immediately nodding in agreement. Definitely 'nom nom', in fact absolutely DIVINE, and a very good indication of the cheesemaker's skill and commitment to producing finest quality cheese. Willowbrae Chevre cheese maker, Karen Borg, creates artisan, award-winning chevre at her farm, which is situated in the foothills of the Hawkesbury Valley. The range includes fresh cheese made with salt; lightly salted fresh curd; sun-dried tomato and dill covered fresh curd roll; curd cheese filled with green peppercorns finished with a lemon pepper crust; Kalamata olive covered fresh curd; two week old mould ripened cheese; marinated fetta; marinated chevre' goats milk yoghurt and mature goat and curd cheese. Visit the Willowbrae stall at the Orange Grove Farmer's Markets in Leichhardt and Frenchs Forest Organic Market.
