Lake Erie Creamery and Old Brooklyn Cheese Co. collaborated together to create Goatzart, Cleveland's first aged goat's cheese.
Lake Erie Creamery makes the fresh goat's cheese and Old Brooklyn Cheese Co. looks after the affinage, the aging and finishing of cheeses.
Goatzart is a semi-soft pasteurized goat's milk cheese. Cave aged for 45-60 days. The mold ripened rind is pressed with extra virgin olive oil during the aging process. With age a translucent paste line develops under the rind. The flavors in the cheese are mild with an earthy, cellar-like aroma and a slight hint of blue in the rind.
