Goats Cheese - raging Debate
I LOVE Goats Cheese... but a colleague maintains it smells like puke. i feel it smells like GOATS! Any views on the ouke vs goat aroma? And are we generally for or against Goats Cheese?

Puke! Definitely UGH. It's a bit like Marmite with regards to what people think of it. I definitely hate it. When I lived in France, they'd taken it on as their own and they put it in EVERYTHING, baguettes, paninis, pizzas... spoiled everything! I hate it and it makes me gag. Th� fact that it smells like a festering goat sty is one of the reasons it makes me wretch.
goats cheese - manna from nirvana. best eaten grilled, or deep fried in breadcrumbs. i've never really noticed any aroma to be honest (other than a cheesy one obviously). as a child i had a stigma with goats cheese as i thought it came from smelly horrible animals but then where does your normal cheese come from? the underside of a smelly horrible cow. (sorry tongue in cheek here, my point being i think people have stigma's attached to non-cow-originating dairy products.) try cheese made from ewes milk - gorgeous..............
I don't like goat's cheese, especially grilled - vile. What annoys me most, is it seems to be the new favourite amongst restaurateurs as the token 'veggie option' (in much the same way that veggie lasagne was about 5 years ago) - goat's cheese salad, goat's cheese tarte, breaded goat's cheese....enough, please! It's so lazy. I'm sure there's plenty of us veggies who can't stand the stuff...
