As a fan of Goat Cheese I wanted to highlight the ones that we stock as well as some of their qualities. I believe that a little goat cheese makes pretty much anything better, whether it’s on a sandwich, salad or cracker, and it is an essential part to any cheese plate. Aside from the photographed logs we stock goat cheese crumbles and are able to special order in a wide variety. Different varieties of goat cheeses can range in taste from strong and pungent, to delicate and mild. They come in many shapes and textures from creamy to crumbly to semi-firm, and reinterpretations of favorite cow’s milk cheeses. They are sold fresh, aged or marinated in olive oil or red wine. They may get coated in herbs, black pepper, edible flowers and even chocolate. Aside from all the other perks of goat cheese it is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol compared to cow’s milk products such as cream cheese. It also provides more calcium than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has fewer calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.*

This past weekend I decided that I needed to expand my cooking realm and utilize a new ingredient, clams. Despite loving all shellfish I’ve never cooked with clams so I searched for a recipe. As I looked through Bon Appetit’s May issue I found a delicious clam recipe-Linguine alle Vongole. Despite being hesitant about cooking with a new ingredient this recipe was a lot of fun to make, and I was probably too excited to pull off the clams one by one as they opened in the pan. This recipe serves 2, but I doubled it to serve 4. Serve with a crusty bread that you can dip into the yummy broth! Mangia Mangia
Linguine alle Vongole
*The briny juices from the clams help to flavor this brothy sauce—the fresher the clams, the better the dish. Clams’ salinity varies depending on their variety and provenance, so in this case, be sure to salt the pasta cooking water lightly.
Kosher salt (CQS030)
6 oz. linguine (991532)
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided (992055)
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced (991057)
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (CQP101)
1/4 cup white wine
2 lb. cockles, Manila clams, or littlenecks, scrubbed (330204)
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Bring 3 quarts water to a boil in a 5-qt. pot. Season lightly with salt; add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until about 2 minutes before tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking water.
Meanwhile, heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, swirling pan often, until just golden. Add red pepper flakes and continue cooking 15 more seconds. Add wine, then clams; increase heat to high. Cover skillet and cook until clams open and release their juices, 3-6 minutes, depending on size of clams. As clams open, use tongs to transfer them to a bowl.
Add 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water to skillet; bring to a boil. Add pasta to pan. Cook over high heat, tossing constantly, until pasta is al dente and has soaked up some of the sauce from the pan. Add clams and any juices from bowl to pan, along with parsley, and toss to combine. (Add more pasta water if sauce seems dry.) Transfer pasta to warm bowls and drizzle with remaining oil.
