Mitica Drunken GoatMitica is, according to the site elegantfoods.net, “a brand representing top of the line products imported from Portugal, Italy and Spain”.  Drunken Goat cheese is so called because the rind is immersed in red wine.  The Mitica version is quite mild for a goat cheese with a lovely nutty bitter aftertaste.   It goes very well with fruit and I think it would be great with something like a port, which unfortunately I can’t verify right now.

Goat cheese probably isn’t for everyone, but I think everyone should try it at least once. I love goat meat too, though. There are some nice places in Korea-town in LA that specialize in goat. Jonathan Gold of the LA Weekly particularly recommends Bulrocho Korean Restaurant.

The Mitica Drunken Goat is $16.99/lb. at Whole Foods.  The sign in the photo was taken at Trader Joe’s (not by me).  You can click on it to see it in it’s original Flickr feed, where credit is given to the artist.
