Day Two Seventy - Trader Joe's tries to do French cheese...

And actually succeeds pretty decently.

The other day, I decided to try Trader Joe's Buche -- a soft ripened goat's milk cheese log modeled on the great French goat cheeses like Bucheron.  The Trader Joe's version at $4.99 for a small 6 to 8 ounce log was fantastic -- with a bloomy exterior and a nice chalky tangy goaty interior wrapped in the traditional straw manner was delish...wasn't exactly similar but a great second runner up!

Unfortunately I didn't snap a picture of it, but if you go to the cheese section at Trader Joe's and ask hopefully they too will be in the know...

It's worth a shot, you might be surprised at how much you like it! Have it with a nice glass of Sancerre and some crusty bread and transport yourself mentally to the Loire Vallery in France.
